Houthi Missile explodes over Sana’a

Sana’a- A ballistic missile that was launched by Houthi militias South Saudi Arabia has exploded in Sana’a causing death and injury cases.

Houthi militias couldn’t find an excuse for the reverse explosion of the missile but to blame the coalition aircrafts. Their media accused the coalition of using cluster munitions, which are internationally banned, to escape the situation they put themselves in.

Moreover, civilians and eyewitnesses in Sana’a said that a missile launched by the Houthis and forces loyal to former deposed President, Ali Abdullah Saleh, has exploded few minutes after it was launched. They added that its fragments, which scattered on a number of neighborhoods, caused damages to houses and cars of citizens.

Eyewitnesses said that the ballistic missile has exploded above al-Siniya neighborhood causing mass destruction, adding that the missile was probably launched from a place near the TV station where many arm warehouses are located.

Yemeni activists mocked the lies and claims by media loyal to Houthi militias on the fact that the Saudi-led Coalition aircrafts have used banned weapons, confirming that the ballistic missiles that are usually launched by Houthis fall few minutes later. They asserted that tens of missiles fired by the Houthis have fallen and others explode in Sana’a, Amran, and Bani Hashish’s skies.

Some activists exchanged photos and live videos of tens of missiles that the group failed to launch.
