DUBAI: Saudi Arabia's Aerial Defense Forces destroyed four ballistic missiles fired the Houthi militia

targeting civilian areas of Jazan, Saudi state-news agency SPAreported.

The four missiles were fired at the same time, around 10:40 am local time.

Arab coalition forces’ official spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said that the rockets were directed towards Jazan City and were deliberately launched by the militia to target civilian and populated areas. The Saudi air defense forces were able to intercept them all.

Saudi state-news channel Al-Ekhbariya reported one civilian fatality due to collateral damage from fragments that fell from the intercepted missiles.

This comes after the Arab coalition launched raids on Houthi areas on Friday night and Saturday morning, killing two senior commanders and over 38 militants.
