Saudi defenses intercept Houthi missile fired at Najran

  • The Saudi Royal Air Defense Force intercepted a ballistic missile headed towards Najran
  • The missile was spotted at 00:39 Saudi time and was said to be fired by the Houthi militia in Yemen

The Saudi Royal Air Defense Force intercepted on Friday morning a ballistic missile headed towards Najran.

The missile was spotted at 00:39 Saudi time and was said to be fired by the Houthi militia in Yemen.

The Houthis deliberately fired the missile towards Najran, targeting civilian and populated areas, coalition spokesman Turki Al-Maliki said in a statement released by the official Saudi Press Agency.

Debris from the missile landed in residential areas of Najran without causing casualties, Al-Maliki said.

The Houthi miltias claimed the attack via their news outlet Al-Masirah, saying the "Badr 1" missile had targeted Najran.

The Iran-backed insurgents have in recent months ramped up missile attacks against neighbouring Saudi Arabia.
