A ballistic missile was intercepted over the coastal city of Mokha west of Yemen by Arab Coalition forces on Sunday.

Yemeni sources said that the ballistic missile launched by Houthi militias was destroyed by Arab Coalition air defense batteries before reaching its target.

Al-Arabiya correspondent reported that coalition aircraft destroyed a missile platform and more than 10 military vehicles carrying Houthi elements, as well as barricades and ammunition used by the militias.

The missile launch came as Arab Coalition fighters targeted Houthi militia reinforcements in the north-west of Taiz and south of the coastal province of Hodeidah.

Coalition aircraft also carried out 30 raids in the provinces of Hajjah, Saada and Jouf on Saturday which destroyed several targets.
