Coalition forces confirmed that they intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile fired by Houthi militias toward the border Saudi city of Jazan on Monday.

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

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.
