A viral video purportedly shows the moment Saudi forces use their anti-missile defense system to destroy a Houthi rocket that was fired toward Saudi Arabia.

The exact date and time the incident took place could not be independently verified but Saudi forces confirmed on July 26 their air defense force intercepted a missile launched by Houthi militias that was headed towards Taif province, west of Saudi Arabia.

The ballistic missile launched by the militias was intercepted by air defense forces using a surface-to-air Patriot missile, dropping its fragments in an uninhabited area.
