Coalition Joint Forces Command: Saudi Royal Air Forces Monitor Two Ballistic Missiles Launched towards Najran, with one falling inside Yemeni territories and the other in an uninhabited desert
The official spokesman of the Coalition Forces (the Coalition for Supporting the Legitimacy in Yemen) Col. Turki Al-Malki said that at 18:46 today, the Saudi Royal Air Forces have monitored two ballistic missiles launched by the Iran-backed terrorist Houthi militias from inside the Yemeni territories (Saada Province) towards the Saudi territories, whereas the first has fallen down inside the Yemeni territories while the other fell down in an unpopulated desert. Thanks to God the Almighty, no harms inflicted from this act up to the issuance of this statement.
Col. Al-Malki said the two missiles were heading towards the city of Najran and were launched in a deliberate way to target areas populated with civilians.
He confirmed that such hostile act by the terrorist Houthi militias affiliated to Iran proves the continuation of the involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Houthi group who were equipped with qualitative armament, in a flagrant and clear violation of the two UN resolutions No. 2216 and 2231 with the aim to threaten the security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as the regional and international security and that launching ballistic missiles towards populated cities and villages is considered contradictory to the international humanitarian law.
