The Arab Coalition’s air force destroyed Houthi missile launch bases on Tuesday night that were placed along the Saudi Arabian border.

Saudi air defense forces also intercepted a Houthi ballistic missile targeting the port city of Jazan early Tuesday.

Air defense forces had intercepted another Houthi missile early Janaury launched from Yemen towards Najran, with no deaths or injuries reported.

Meanwhile, a Yemeni source said that the Yemeni army is continuing to advance in the Saada governorate, the stronghold of the Houthi militia.

He said that tense battles took place between both sides in the strategic area of the al-Alib mountains. The army was able to liberate various sites behind these mountains in the past two days, capturing five Houthis in the process and recovering large quantities of weapons and ammunition.
