Arab Coalition forces intercepted and destroyed two ballistic missiles and six explosive drones launched by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia towards Saudi Arabia, the coalition’s spokesperson Colonel Turki Al Maliki said on Monday.
The attacks were launched from Sana'a and deliberately targeted Saudi civilians and civilian objects, Al Maliki said in a statement published by the Saudi Press Agency, SPA.
He added that the militia was "deliberately escalating hostilities" in Yemen and neighbouring countries using ballistic missiles and drones, noting that the Joint forces will continue to foil threats through "monitoring, destruction and tackling them within areas under the Houthi militia’s control."
The coalition said it had destroyed the one targeting Najran, as well as six additional explosive-laden drones fired by the Houthis aimed at the kingdom.
On Tuesday, the SPA news agency quoted the kingdom's military spokesman, Col. Turki Al Malki, as saying that Saudi air defences intercepted a ballistic missile fired "toward Riyadh." The report did not elaborate.
