The Iran-backed militia continues its hostile attempts to attack civilians in both Yemen and Saudi Arabia, the coalition added.

One civilian was killed and six others were wounded after a ballistic missile launched by the Iran-backed group fell in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Yemen’s Marib, Al Arabiya sources reported earlier on Tuesday citing local sources.

The Houthis fired a ballistic missile at the city at about 11 a.m. local time, the sources added.
