Riyadh, Jumada II 29, 1438, March 28, 2017, SPA -- The Coalition Command to Support the Legitimacy in Yemen announced that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces intercepted four ballistic missiles launched by the Yemeni Houthi militias towards the cities of Khamis Mushayt and Abha at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday and they were intercepted and destroyed without causing any damage.
The Command said in a statement today the Coalition air forces immediately targeted the launching sites, stressing that the continuation of militias in targeting cities with ballistic missiles is the largest evidence of continuing smuggling of weapons to Yemen by all ways and means, especially from the port of Hodeidah.
