The Arab Coalition said it has destroyed a ballistic missile fired by the Iran-backed Houthi militia launched toward Saudi Arabia’s southern city of Jazan.
The attack on Jazan is the second in as many hours after the Arab Coalition destroyed a drone launched by the Houthis towards Saudi Arabia’s Khamis Mushait.
Over 24 hours ago earlier, the Arab Coalition said it destroyed an explosive drone launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia towards Saudi Arabia’s Jazan.
The Iran-backed group has launched dozens of aerial attacks on Saudi Arabia in recent months, targeting civilian areas and energy facilities in the Kingdom with explosive-laden drones and ballistic missiles.
The coalition is taking operational measures to protect civilians in accordance with international humanitarian law, Coalition Spokesperson Brigadier General Turki al-Maliki.
