Houthi politician Sheikh Sultan Al-Samie, a member of the Supreme Political Council, said in a July 22, 2019 interview on Al-Thaqalayn TV (Lebanon) that the Houthis have a list of over 300 targets in several Gulf countries and that they will be using a new type of missile in the coming days. Sheikh Al-Samie said that the list of targets includes electrical grids, desalination plants, and airports, and he claimed that the Houthis have many deterrent weapons that have been locally manufactured by Yemeni youth. He added: "We will surprise [our enemies] in the coming days [unless they] stop their siege and war on the Yemeni people."
Sheikh Sultan Al-Samie: "We have over 300 targets in several Gulf countries, and in the coming days, we will be using new weapons – missiles that you have not heard about before – as part of the balance of war. The shutting down of our airports will be countered by the shutting down of the enemy's airports. We have a [list] of very important targets – such as striking the electricity grids and the desalination plants in several countries. They should know that we are not like we were four years ago. We have many deterrent weapons. We manufacture them here in Yemen, using the expertise of young Yemeni people. We will surprise [our enemies] in the coming days if they are not deterred and if they do not stop their siege and war on the Yemeni people."
