RIYADH — The Saudi Royal Air Defense forces intercepted on Thursday a ballistic missile that targeted the Kingdom.

Col. Turki Al-Malki, spokesman of the Saudi-led Coalition forces fighting for legitimacy in Yemen, said in a statement that at around 8.20 p.m., the air defense forces of the Coalition spotted a ballistic missile being fired by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias from the Yemeni territory of Saada toward the southern city of Jazan.

The forces intercepted the missile and its debris fell on a residential district in Jazan city but there were no reports of injury or damage caused by the debris, he said.

The Saudi air defense forces had successfully downed on Wednesday two hostile drones over the southern cities of Abha and Jazan and intercepted three ballistic missiles fired toward Riyadh, Najran and Jazan by the Houthi militias from the Yemeni territories. — SG/SPA
