Coalition forces say they have destroyed a ballistic missile launched by Yemeni militias targeting the city of Khamis Mushait.

The attack comes a day after at least 11 missiles were launched into the southern border village of al-Tuwal in Saudi Arabia, Al Arabiya News Channel’s correspondent reported.

Coalition forces were still pounding Yemeni militia targets across the border near the cities of Jazan and southern Dhahran.
