Yemeni Vice President Lt. Gen Ali Mohsen Saleh said on Sunday that the Arab coalition foiled Iran’s attempts to overthrow his country, Saudi state-news agency Al-Ekhbariya reported.

During a meeting with Yemeni Ministry of Defense officials and Arab coalition leaders in Marib, Mohsen said the Iran-backed Houthi militia were targeting not only Yemen but also the security of the region and were seeking to undermine international peace.

The Yemeni vice president praised the Yemeni army’s victories in the Al-Bayda, Al-Jawf, Taiz, Al-Hodeidah, Midi provinces, as well as other fronts.
