Saudi-led coalition will continue to target Houthis in Yemen: spokesman

DUBAI (Reuters) - A Saudi-led coalition will continue to target movements by the Houthi militia group inside Yemen, Saudi spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed Asseri said on Tuesday.

“The coalition will continue to prevent the movement of Houthi militias from moving or undertaking any operations inside Yemen,” Asseri told reporters in the Saudi capital Riyadh.

The announcement suggests military action by the Sunni Muslim states against the Iran-allied rebels may continue despite the announcement earlier of an end to the almost month-long military campaign.
