Saudi Arabia intercepts Houthi ballistic missile targeting Jazan

Riyadh, Aug 19 : The Saudi air forces said they have intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Houthi militias toward the border city of Jazan.

This come two weeks after the air forces have intercepted five missiles that targeted border cities, without reporting casualties or property damage, Al Arabiya has reported.

Since the Saudi-led coalition intervened in the Yemeni civil war in early 2015, the kingdom has been targeted by 177 missiles, the report said.

Saudi Arabia has been accusing Iran of destabilizing regional stability by providing Yemen’s Houthi rebels with missiles and weapons.
