KSA intercepts Houthi missile over Khamis Mushayt

  • The missile was intercepted at 5:43 p.m over the city of Khamis Mushayt

JEDDAH: The Saudi Air Defense Force intercepted a ballistic missile fired by the Iran-backed Houthi militias from Saada province, Yemen, toward Saudi territories, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Tuesday.

The official spokesman for the coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen, Col. Turki Al-Maliki, stated that at 5:43 p.m., the air force intercepted a missile launched by the Houthi militias over the city of Khamis Mushayt. No one was injured, and no property was damaged.

Al-Maliki said: “This hostile act… proves that the Iranian regime is still providing the terrorist Houthi armed militia with qualitative capabilities, in flagrant defiance of UN Security Council resolutions 2216 and 2231, with the main objective of threatening Saudi, regional and international security.”

“Launching ballistic missiles at densely populated civilian areas is a direct breach of the principles of international humanitarian law,” he added.
