Saudi Arabia’s air defense forces intercepted on Friday evening a Houthi ballistic missile launched toward Najran, southwestern city in the Kingdom near the border with Yemen.

Last Saturday too air defense forces had intercepted a ballistic missile launched by Houthis toward the Kingdom’s southwestern Jizan region.

The Houthis has stepped up missile attacks on the kingdom in recent weeks.

The Yemeni legitimate forces have repeatedly stressed the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Houthi militias and supplying them with rockets carrying qualitative capabilities, in clear defiance to United Nations Resolutions 2216 and 2231 in order to threaten the security of Saudi Arabia and destabilize regional and international security.
