The Arab coalition air defense intercepted and destroyed a Houthi ballistic missile launched toward Najran in Saudi Arabia.

The spokesman of the Arab coalition forces, Colonel Turki al-Maliki, said that at exactly (06:17 Saudi local time) Friday, the coalition’s air defense spotted the launch of a ballistic missile- by the Houthi pro-Iranian terrorist organization- from within the Yemeni Saada governorate toward Saudi Arabia.

He added that the missile was intercepted and destroyed over the Yemeni territories.

There were no injuries during the incident.

The total number of ballistic missiles launched by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias toward Saudi Arabia has so far reached 206, killing 112 civilians and foreigners, while injuring hundreds others.

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