RIYADH: A missile launched by the Houthi militia in Yemen landed on Sunday in Jazan, southwestern Saudi Arabia.
Col. Mohammed bin Yahya Al-Ghamdi, a spokesperson for the Saudi Civil Defense, said a car was damaged from shrapnel but no one was harmed.
He said the missile was launched by the “Iranian-backed Houthi militia from inside the Yemeni territories toward one of the border villages in Al-Ardha governorate in Jazan.”
On Sept. 15, the Houthi militia launched a missile toward Jazan, injuring five people and damaging civilian property and three vehicles.
The Houthis have continuously targeted Saudi cities and civilian infrastructure from within Yemen.
