Coalition: Houthi ballistic missile hits residential area in Yemen

RIYADH: The Iran-backed Houthi militia fired a ballistic missile on Tuesday targeting civilians in the governorate of Marib.

Coalition spokesman Turki Al-Maliki said the continued Houthi violations to international humanitarian law by firing missiles on civilians and population areas threatens the lives of hundreds of people.

The launch of this ballistic missile, the statement said, is an intentional escalation towards civilians inside Yemen and in the region.
