Yemen Says to Block Shipping Route in Red Sea If Saudis Continue Attacks

Yemen, one of the Arab world's poorest countries, is embroiled in a proxy war between the Houthi armed movement, allied with Iran, and a US -backed military coalition headed by Saudi Arabia.

The Huthi rebels, locked in a war against Yemen's Saudi-backed government, said they had fired a missile at the kingdom's southwestern province of Najran in a statement tweeted by their Al-Masirah television channel.

The rocket was said to be targeting the spot in the Najran Region of the country, but has been intercepted.

The scattered fragments of the missile caused minor damage to a private property, while no injuries were reported.

Al-Maliki said that this hostile action by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias proves the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Houthi armed militias in clear and explicit defiance of the United Nations resolutions 2216 and 2231.

Apple's App Store Has A Record Breaking Holiday Season
The App Store has been vital to Apple's sales of both devices and the commission-generating programs and services made for them. Pokemon GO went back to the top of the charts on 21 December when it introduced AR features based on Apple's ARKit framework.

Al-Maliki renewed his call on the global community to take more serious and effective steps to stop the blatant Iranian violations through the continued smuggling and transfer of ballistic missiles and weapons to terrorist groups and outlaws.

Saudi Arabia has been leading a war against Houthis in Yemen since 2015 that led to hundreds of deaths among armed groups and civilians.

The United States, a long-time ally of Saudi Arabia, has said Iran manufactured a missile fired by the Houthis towards Riyadh's global airport in November. Tehran rejected the evidence as "fabricated".

Despite the coalition's superior firepower, the rebels still control the capital and much of the north of the country.

More than 8,750 people have been killed since the coalition intervened, according to the World Health Organization.
