RIYADH: The Arab coalition destroyed a Houthi ballistic missile fired toward Jazan on Friday, Al-Ekhbariya reported.
The militia’s hostile attempts to target civilians are systematic and deliberate, the coalition said.
The coalition said it is taking operational measures to protect civilians in accordance with international humanitarian law.
The attack came a day after the coalition destroyed five ballistic missiles and four explosive-laden drones launched by Houthis toward Saudi Arabia on Thursday.
Those attacks originated from Sa’dah governorate in Yemen, spokesman Brig. Gen. Turki Al-Malki said.
