Saudi defenses intercept Houthi missile fired toward Khamis Mushait

Saudi Arabia confirmed on Tuesday that a ballistic missile fired by the Houthi militias from within Yemeni territories toward Khamis Mushait in the south.


The Houthis deliberately fired the missiles towards Najran, targeting civilian and populated areas, Spokesman for the Saudi-led Arab Coalition Turki Al-Maliki said in a statement. 

The Iran-backed insurgents have in recent months ramped up missile attacks against neighboring Saudi Arabia.
