The comment came early Saturday from Saudi Brig. Gen. Turki al-Malki to Saudi state TV.
Al-Malki said the failure by Yemen's Houthis to report the site to international authorities represented the militias' ``usual deceptive approach.''
Friday's strike was part of a pounding aerial offensive that hours earlier took the Arab world's poorest country off the internet. The intense campaign comes after the Iran-backed Houthis claimed a drone and missile attack that struck inside the capital of the United Arab Emirates earlier in the week.
