The Saudi air defense on Thursday intercepted a ballistic missile launched by the Houthi militias on Najran.

Last Friday, social networking sites shared a number of pictures of an intercepted Houthi missile in the Najran area.

The pictures showed that the missile fragments were scattered on one of the cars, which was partially destroyed, without any injuries reported.

Colonel Turki al-Maliki, the spokesperson of the Arab coalition forces said that the air defense forces of the coalition spotted at 7:56 am on Friday morning, the launch of a ballistic missile from within the Yemeni territory in the direction of Najran in Saudi Arabia.

Colonel al-Maliki said that the missile targeted civilian and populated areas. It was intercepted and destroyed by the Patriot Brigades in the skies of Najran, causing scattered shrapnel that caused minor damage to the property of one of the citizens without causing any casualties.
