Saudi Arabia's Air Defense forces have intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Houthi terrorists from Yemen’s Saada toward Najran on Saturday، according to the spokesman for the coalition supporting the legitimacy in Yemen، Colonel Turki al-Maliki، Arab New reported.
Al-Maliki said that the hostile action taken by the terrorists proves the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Houthi armed groups in clear and explicit defiance of the UN resolution 2216 and resolution 2231.
He said they aimed at threatening the security of Saudi Arabia and threatening regional and international security - and that firing ballistic missiles at populated cities and villages is contrary to international humanitarian law.
Colonel al-Maliki renewed his call for the international community to take more serious and effective steps to stop the blatant Iranian violations of the continued smuggling and transfer of ballistic missiles and weapons to terrorist groups، and to hold them accountable for their defiance of international norms and values.
Earlier last week، Saudi Arabia's Air Defense forces intercepted a ballistic missile fired by the Houthis on Jazan. Saudi forces succeeded in intercepting the missile before reaching its target.
Col. Al-Maliki said that at 8PM on Tuesday evening، the air defense forces detected the launch of a ballistic missile by the Iran-backed Houthi terrorists from Yemeni territories towards Saudi Arabia
