Iran-backed Houthi militias have failed to launch a ballistic missile towards Saudi Arabia from Hajjah city in northwestern Yemen, al-Arabiya reported on Tuesday.
Sources said the missile most likely fell into international waters in the Red Sea.
The Patriot Missile Defense System of the Arab coalition in Yemen also intercepted a ballistic missile in Ma’rib which Houthi militias and forces loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh launched towards the city.
Local sources said the missile was destroyed above an empty area and did not cause any damage.
On Monday night, the coalition’s warships shelled a camp that the Shiite militias control in the district of Bajil in Hodeidah.
In the early hours of Tuesday, battles renewed in al-Maslub front, west of al-Jawf governorate after cautious calm prevailed for few days.
A Popular Resistance source said violent clashes erupted between national army forces and the resistance on one hand and Houthi militias and forces loyal to ousted president Saleh on another in the areas of Waqz and Gharafa in al-Maslub district and in the areas of Ham and Mazwya in the neighboring district of al-Matoun.
Some terrorists were killed or injured while dozens fled their posts.
