  • Government

Spokesman for the Arab coalition, Col. Turki Al-Malki has confirmed that Air Defense Forces intercepted a ballistic missile launched by Houthi militia toward Najran.



Al-Maliki said that the missile was deliberately launched to target civilian and populated areas.

The Saudi Royal Air Defense Force succeeded in intercepting and destroying the missile.

The spokesman said that the Iranian regime’s continued assistance to the Houthis is in clear and explicit defiance of UN resolution 2216 and resolution 2231 aimed at threatening the security of Saudi Arabia and threatening regional security.

He added that the firing of ballistic missiles towards densely populated cities and villages is contrary to international and humanitarian law.



The total number of ballistic missiles launched by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia towards Saudi Arabia has reached 181.
