Saudi air forces intercepted a ballistic missile fired by the Houthi militias from Yemen towards the southwestern city of Najran on Thursday evening.

The Houthis have stepped up missile attacks on the Kingdom in recent months.

The total number of ballistic missiles launched by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias toward Saudi Arabia has so far reached 191.

 The Yemeni legitimate forces have repeatedly highlighted the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Houthi militias and supplying them with rockets carrying qualitative capabilities, in clear defiance of United Nations Resolutions 2216 and 2231 in order to threaten the security of Saudi Arabia and destabilize regional and international security.
