The Arab Coalition supporting the legitimate government in Yemen intercepted and downed on Tuesday evening two Houthi ballistic missiles launched from Sanaa.

The Arab Coalition air defenses destroyed the two missiles inside the Yemeni territories of Amran and Saada.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Coalition intercepted and downed a ballistic missile in Yemen’s Saada after the pro-Iranian Houthi militia launched it from Amran province in western central Yemen.

The coalition’s spokesperson Colonel Turki al-Maliki said that the Houthis continue to violate international humanitarian law by launching missile and drone attacks, and putting civilian lives at risk.

The coalition has taken all measures to protect civilians, he said.

Al-Maliki stressed the continued leadership of the joint forces of the coalition to implement deterrent measures against the Houthis “to neutralize and destroy these capabilities.”
