Saudi Arabia thwarts Houthi ballistic missile attack

  • Houthi rebels fired a ballistic missile into southern Saudi Arabia, which was destroyed by the Saudi air force in mid-air.
  • According to a spokesman for the Arab Military Coalition, Yemen's Houthi rebels fired a ballistic missile into the southern city of Najran, which was destroyed in mid-air before reaching its target through an air defense system.
  • According to the spokesman, before the missile attack, Houthi insurgents also tried to attack with drones, which was thwarted.
  • The spokesman added that the Houthis had also fired several missiles on Thursday, which were destroyed in mid-air.



  • What is the Yemen conflict?
  • It should be noted that the Arab country Yemen has been suffering from civil war since September 2014 when the pro-Iranian Houthi militia occupied a large part of Yemen, including the capital Sanaa, due to which Yemeni President Mansour Hadi had to take refuge abroad.
  • The conflict escalated in 2015 when a Saudi-led military coalition launched a military operation in Yemen to restore Mansour Hadi's government.
  • According to the report, since 2015, more than 60,000 people have been killed and thousands injured as a result of the use of force by both sides, while millions have been displaced.
