RIYADH — Col. Turki Al-Maliki, the spokesman of the Arab Coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen, said that Houthi militias are forcing illegal immigrants to migrate to Saudi Arabia. “The Iranian-backed militias are trying to exploit the global situation in light of the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic,” he said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency.

Al-Maliki drew attention to the reports of the International Organization for Migration that showed that the number of illegal immigrants from the Horn of Africa countries has exceeded 200,000 people, pointing out that the Houthi militias are trying to confuse the Saudi border security forces by using the illegal immigrants. “The Houthi militias are pushing illegal immigrants gathered in Saada by shooting at them so as to push them to the borders of Saudi Arabia,” the spokesman said. He added the security authorities in the Kingdom are dealing with the waves of illegal immigrants in accordance with the humanitarian principles.
