Yemen’s Houthis claim ‘Saudi base’ strike as Riyadh says it intercepted missile fired at ‘civilians’

Yemen’s Houthis claim ‘Saudi base’ strike
Saudi Arabia has managed to intercept a ballistic missile launched from Yemen into a “civilian area,” according to the Arab coalition. Houthi rebels meanwhile claimed they had targeted and successfully hit a Saudi military base.

Two ballistic missiles were fired on Saturday evening from Yemen into Saudi Arabia, allegedly targeting Khamis Mushait, a city in the south-west of the country, the coalition forces announced. One of the projectiles was reportedly destroyed by the Saudi air defense systems, while the other fell short of its intended target in the desert.

“No casualties were reported,” a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, Col. Turki Al-Malki, said in a statement, carried by the country’s official SPA news agency. “Launching ballistic missiles at densely populated civilian areas is a direct breach of the principles of the international humanitarian law.”
