Saudi air defences intercepted on Tuesday a ballistic missile fired by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias in Yemen towards the southern city of Jizan.


Arab coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said that the missile was fired from the region of Saada towards populated areas in Jizan.

The Saudi air defencefs intercepted the rocket and its shrapnel landed in residential areas without leading to any injuries.

Maliki condemned the hostile Houthi attack, which demonstrates Tehran’s ongoing involvement of supporting the militia with weapons.

This is a clear and blatant violation of International Humanitarian Law and United Nations Security Council resolutions 2216 and 2231, he added.
