Coalition Forces Spokesman: RSADF Destroy Ballistic Missile Fired by Al-Houthi Militias on KSA

The official spokesman of the Coalition Forces (the Coalition Supporting
Legitimacy in Yemen) Colonel Turki Al-Malki stated that at 14:40 p.m.,
the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces (RSADF) intercepted a ballistic
missile launched by Iran-backed Al-Houthi militias from Yemeni
territories towards the Kingdom's territories.

He explained that the missile, which was targeting the Governorate
of Al-Shuqaiq was deliberately launched to target civilian and populated
areas, where the RSADF succeeded in intercepting and destroying it
without causing any injuries.

Colonel Al-Malki added that this hostile action by terrorist
Al-Houthi militias backed by Iran proves the continuing involvement of
the Iranian regime in support of Al-Houthi armed militias with
qualitative capabilities in a clear and explicit defiance for the
violation of United Nations 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.
