Arab Coalition air defense systems on Sunday intercepted two ballistic missiles fired by Houthi militias toward the coastal Yemeni city of al-Mokha.

Sources said the intercepted ballistic missiles over Mokha were destroyed without causing any damage. The initial launching points of the missiles has not been pinpointed yet.

Houthi militias have recently stepped up launching of ballistic missile toward liberated provinces in Yemen and Saudi territories.

The legitimate government of Yemen accuses Iran of supplying Houthi militias with ballistic missiles.
