Saudi Arabian forces intercept Houthi ballistic missile targeting Jazan, on Friday.

The Saudi air defense forces had intercepted and destroyed on Wednesday, a ballistic missile in the sky of Riyadh. Al Arabiya correspondent said that Patriot missiles intercepted it, and its explosion sound could be heard in more than one place in the Saudi capital.

Last Sunday, the Saudi air defense intercepted two ballistic missiles fired by the Houthis towards Najran.

Al Arabiya correspondent reported that the Saudi Air Defense Forces destroyed the two missiles launched by the Houthis from Saada as soon as they entered the kingdom’s airspace.

This comes after a series of successive defeats received by the militias, especially after the liberation of several strategic sites in Saada.
