An Arab Coalition airstrike has destroyed a ballistic missile platform in northwestern Yemeni province of Hajja on Friday.

A military source stated that the coalition strike targeted the missile platform after it was spotted in a rural area between the Hiran administrative district and the northern border town of Hardh.

The coalition launched a number of airstrikes in the area that led to the destruction of heavy weaponry and vehicles belonging to the Houthi militias killing and injuring an unspecified number of militants.

The source further stated that the platform was used to fire a ballistic missile in to the Saudi territories earlier. He said that the coalition forces located the platform and targeted it despite efforts to conceal its position.
