"The GCC countries want a Middle East free from all weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons".

With the long-awaited start date for issuing driving licences to women in the Kingdom just around the corner, the General Department of Traffic's Director, Major General Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Bassami, has announced last week that all requirements for women in Saudi Arabia to start driving were in place.

Riyadh has repeatedly accused the Houthis of acting as a proxy military force for Shia Iran, Saudi Arabia's arch-foe in the region.

He said: "Iran has been supporting militant and terrorist groups across the Middle East since the enactment of the 2015 nuclear deal".

The move was undertaken in co-ordination with the Yemeni government, the coalition said.

The crisis was triggered after the Yemeni government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi protested the deployment of UAE troops to the island.
