Saudi-led coalition: Houthis' actions turn Yemen ports into legitimate target

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said that Houthis' use of civilian sites as fortresses will turn Hodeidah and Salif ports into legitimate military targets, coalition spokesman Brigadier General Turki al-Malki said on Saturday.

"We do not want to target the ports... We want to reach a comprehensive political solution, but when they use civilian sites... they forfeit the immunity... thus it (Hodeidah and Salif ports) will be a legitimate military target."
