The Saudi air defense forces on Saturday destroyed a ballistic missile fired by the Houthi militias targeting Najran, sources told Al Arabiya. There has yet to be a formal statement from the Arab Coalition on the incident.

The missile is the second to be launched by the militias within 24 hours, targeting Saudi soil.

The launch of the Houthi missile towards the Kingdom comes in light of successive violations by the militias of the Sweden agreement.

On November 2, Najran was also targeted by a Houthi ballistic missile, but Arab Coalition forces succeeded in intercepting it without any injuries caused.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki had stated that the Houthi militias continuously attempt to threaten the security of the Kingdom, regional security, as well as violate international humanitarian laws.

The Houthis fired more than 206 rockets into Saudi Arabia, killing more than 211 civilians and residents, as well as injuring hundreds.
