Saudi Arabia intercepts missile fired from Yemen

Riyadh, March 31 : Saudi air defence forces intercepted and destroyed a Houthi ballistic missile targeting the border city of Najran on Saturday, the media reported.

The Saudi Press Agency quoted Coalition Forces spokesman Colonel Turki Al-Malki as saying the missile was deliberately launched to target civilian populated areas. “The missile was intercepted and destroyed by the Saudi Royal Air Defence Forces.”

The Saudi-led coalition Air Force destroyed the missile’s platform.

Another border city, Jazan, was also targeted with a missile earlier this week that was intercepted by the forces, it said.
