A ballistic missile has fallen in Yemen’s Saada region after Houthi militias fail to launch it into Saudi Arabia.

This comes more than a month after Saudi air defense intercepted a Houthi ballistic missile over Khamis Mushayt and destroyed its launch pad in Yemen.

Houthi militias are known to have used Iranian missiles to launch attacks against Saudi Arabia and Yemeni areas under the control of the legitimate government of Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.
