The Saudi air defense intercepted a Houthi ballistic missile over Khamis Mushayt and destroyed its launch pad in Yemen.

On Saturday, the Yemeni army announced that it had launched a reconnaissance and espionage operation of the Houthi militia in the northern province of Jouf in a third operation in less than a week.

Field sources confirmed that “members of the army shot down a reconnaissance plane while filming the positions of the National Army of the Ham Front in the Directorate of Mtoon in the province of Al-Jouf,” according to the news site quoted a spokesman for the Yemeni army.

This is the third reconnaissance aircraft dropped during the past four days, where two planes of this type were dropped in Nahm east of Sanaa and the Karsh front in the province of Lahj.
