The Arab Coalition air defense forces intercepted four ballistic missiles launched by Houthi militias and fighters allied  to ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh  on Monday night.

These missiles, that were successfully intercepted without causing any damage, were intended to target the coastal city of Mokha in western Yemen.

Arab coalition air forces have also bombed outposts controlled by Houthi militias in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.

Meanwhile, the Yemeni army bombed militia outposts in the neighborhoods of Seteen, al-Rabat and Hael in Sanaa.

Al Arabiya's sister channel Al-Hadath reported that violent explosions were heard in these areas.
