Saudi air defense intercepts ballistic missile fired toward Najran
Saudi Arabia’s air defense says they have intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Houthi militias towards the border city of Najran, al-Arabyia reported on Sunday.

Authorities confirmed that forces intercepted one missile on Sunday while another landed in a secluded desert area of the border city.


The southern city of Najran - close to the border with Yemen, has borne the brunt ever since the Houthi militia forces took over swathes of the country in a 2014 coup.


According to officials, the city has witnessed more than 10,000 rocket attacks mostly arbitrarily targeting civilians since the conflict in Yemen first began.
