Coalition Forces Command: RSADF Destroy Ballistic Missile Fired By Iran-backed Al-Houthi Terrorist Militia on KSA

The official spokesman of the Coalition Forces Command "Coalition for
Supporting the Legitimacy in Yemen" Colonel Turki Al-Malki announced
that at 12:40 pm today, the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces (RSADF)
intercepted a ballistic missile launched by Iran-backed Al-Houthi
militia from within Yemeni territories (Saada Governorate) towards the
Kingdom's territories.

He explained that the missile which was targeting the city (Jazan)
deliberately launched to target civilian and populated areas, where the
Saudi Royal Air Defense Forces succeeded in intercepting and destroying
it, resulted in the scattering of the missile's fragments over the
residential areas without causing any injuries.

Colonel Al-Malki further said that this hostile action by the
terrorist Al-Houthi militia backed by Iran proves the continuing
involvement of the Iranian regime in support of Al-Houthi armed militia
with qualitative capabilities in a clear and explicit defiance for the
violation of UN resolutions (2216 and 2231) in order to threaten the
security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the regional and
international security and that launching ballistic missiles towards
densely populated cities and villages is contrary to the international
humanitarian law.
