The Iran-backed Houthi militias and their allies launched their ballistic missile towards the Saudi city of Makkah - which was intercepted late Thursday - from a mosque in the Yemeni city of Saada, spokesman for the Arab Coalition said in an interview published on Saturday.

Brigadier General Ahmed Asiri, who is also an advisor at the Saudi Minister of Defense’s office, told the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat, that the Royal Saudi Forces targeted the location where the missiles were launched towards Makkah, which harbors Islam’s holiest site, and they found it was a mosque.

“These people know no religion and have no morals. They are using mosques, schools, and hospitals for their criminal acts,” he said.

Asiri reiterated that the coalition will continue to support the internationally recognized Yemeni President Abed Rabu Mansour Hadi’s forces both politically and militarily.
