JEDDAH: An elderly woman was killed on Thursday and another 11 civilians injured after a missile attack from Yemen hit Najran in Saudi Arabia.
Civil Defence spokesperson Major Yahya Al-Qahtani said the incident took place at around 9:30am in the town of Samtah in Najran province.
The incident was the second in 24-hours where a missile attacked caused a fatality in the same town. One person died and seven others were injured on Wednesday after a missile hit a residential building.
On the same day, two missiles aimed at the southern Saudi cities of Abha and Khamis Mushait were shot down by the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces.
