RIYADH: The coalition said on Wednesday that more than 280 Houthis were killed in strikes on the Yemeni provinces of Al-Jouf and Marib.

The coalition added that 25 military vehicles and air defenses were also destroyed during the strikes over the last 24 hours. 

Four operations targeting Yemen’s western coast were also carried out to support coastal forces and protect civilians, the coalition said. 

These operations targeted military vehicles and ammunition dumps, and more than 30 Houthis were killed as a result.

Meanwhile, the coalition said it carried out airstrikes on the Houthi militia’s central security camp in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, and destroyed 7 warehouses used to hide drones and weapons, Al Ekhbariya reported on early Thursday.

The coalition said the operation in Sanaa was an immediate response to the Houthi drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s Jazan region. The drone was intercepted and destroyed by coalition air defenses.

Coalition leaders warned civilians not to gather around or approach the targeted sites.

The Houthi militia have chosen to be hit by strikes “when they try to target civilians,” the report said.
