Saudi forces intercept Houthi missile targeting Najran

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

Last week, the kingdom’s air defense system intercepted a ballistic Houthi missile fired from northern Yemen.
A Saudi-led coalition said the missile was fired from Saada province toward the southern Saudi city of Najran. No casualties were reported.
Coalition spokesperson, Col. Turki Al-Maliki, said that at 12:52 p.m. the coalition’s air defense forces spotted the missile launched by the Iran-backed militant group, where it was intercepted and destroyed.
Al-Maliki said that the missile was deliberately launched to target civilian and populated areas.
The spokesperson added that “this hostile action by the Houthi militia proves the Iranian regime’s continued involvement in supporting the rebels 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.”
