Arab coalition spokesperson Colonel Turki al-Maliki, in a press conference held Monday September 30th, said that in the past five weeks alone 1,500 Houthi militants had been killed and the group had lost 250 vehicles, according to the Yemeni Aden Times.

Al-Maliki said, "We targeted four sites the Houthis were using to mobilise bomb speedboats in the Red Sea," adding that "Houthi militias launched 265 ballistic missiles from Yemeni soil targeting civilians."

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Kuwait continue to provide humanitarian aid to the Yemeni people. The Houthi militias are still using Hodeida as a launchpad for ballistic missiles and drones, according to al-Maliki.
