Saudi Arabia’s air defense said forces intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Houthi militias that targeted the border city of Jazan.

Last Saturday (August 18) and a wekk earlier on August 11 also the  forces had intercepted ballistic missiles that targeted Jazan.

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.
