RIYADH: The Arab coalition said Thursday it intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile fired by the Houthi militia towards Jazan on Thursday.
The attack on Jazan come days after the coalition thwarted a ballistic missile attack by the Iranian-backed Houthis on the Saudi capital Riyadh, and destroyed six armed drones launched towards cities in the Kingdom’s south.
On Tuesday, a projectile launched by the Houthis injured five people after it fell in Jazan.
The Kingdom has seen an increase in attacks by the militia after a Houthi attack on Saudi Arabia’s Abha International airport in February.
