Saudi defense forces intercept, destroy Houthi ballistic missile targeting Jazan

Saudi Arabia’s defense forces on Monday intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia towards Jazan, according to a statement.

The Arab Coalition in a statement said Saudi air defense forces “thwarted the militias’ futile attempts” to target the Kingdom.

On Sunday, Saudi air defenses intercepted and destroyed three explosive drones launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia towards Khamis Mushait, the Arab Coalition said.

“The Houthi militia deliberately targeted civilians and civilian infrastructure. We are dealing with the threats firmly to protect civilians from hostile attacks,” the Arab Coalition said in a statement.
