Arab Coalition destroys Houthi ballistic missile fired toward Saudi Arabia's Riyadh
The Arab Coalition on Tuesday intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile, launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia, that was heading towards Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) cited the coalition’s spokesperson Turki al-Maliki as saying.
“The coalition forces have successfully intercepted and destroyed this morning (Tuesday) a ballistic missile launched by the terrorist Houthi militia from (Sana’a) toward Riyadh in a hostile, deliberate and systematic operation to target civilians and civilian objects,” al-Maliki said.
The terrorist Houthi militia is continuing to deliberately and systematically target civilians and civilian objects that are protected under international humanitarian law with ballistic missiles and UAVs, he added.
Late on Monday, the coalition confirmed they intercepted eight bomb-laden drones and three ballistic missiles launched by the Iranian-allied Houthi militia toward Saudi Arabia.
