Saudi forces intercept Houthi missile targeting Najran

  • The spokesperson said that “this hostile action by the Houthi militia proves the Iranian regime’s continued involvement in supporting the militia”

DUBAI: Saudi forces intercept missile fired by Houthi militias in the direction of Najran on Wednesday.

The Arab coalition’s spokesman, Col. Turki Al-Maliki, said that Saudi aerial defense forces intercepted a missile launched by the Iran-backed militia from Yemen’s Saada.

Al-Maliki said that the missile targeted Najran, and was aimed at civilian populated areas, but the defense forces were able to intercept and destroy the projectile without any casualties.
The spokesperson added that “this hostile action by the Houthi militia proves the Iranian regime’s continued involvement in supporting the militia with qualitative capabilities in clear and explicit defiance of UN resolution 2216 and 2231 aimed at safeguarding Saudi Arabia’s security and any regional and international threats.”
