The Arab Coalition defense systems intercepted two ballistic missiles fired by the Houthi militia towards Marib on Friday, an Al Arabiya reporter confirmed.

In the past few days, the coalition carried out air raids in Saada targeting Houthi checkpoints which caused the death and injury of tens of militiamen, including field commanders.

Coalition raids also destroyed other Houthi checkpoints in the city of Saqen and in southern Saada which lead to the death of 15 militiamen including the checkpoint commander, Taha Tawus.

The militia was using the southern Saada checkpoint to isolate the province from the rest of Yemen and prevent the entry of any non-residents of the area.
