Coalition shoots down ballistic missile fired by Houthi militia toward Najran
The Arab coalition air defense forces on Friday intercepted and shot down a ballistic missile fired by Houthi militia toward the city of Najran.
According to a statement from Arab coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki, the air defense forces were able to intercept and destroy the missile, which was launched to target civilian areas in the city.
Al-Maliki added that these hostile actions by the Houthi militia proved the Iranian regime’s involvement with, and support for, the militia.
It also continued to threaten the security of the Kingdom and regional and international security.
The attack is the latest in a series of missile launches targeting densely populated residential areas of Saudi Arabia, close to the border with Yemen.
