Saudi Warplanes Launch Attacks on Yemen's Marib

Saudi Warplanes Launch Attacks on Yemen's Marib

Al Arabiya also published on Thursday that the Saudi air defense intercepted a ballistic missile launched by the Houthi militias on Najran.

Colonel Turki al-Maliki, the spokesperson of the Arab coalition forces said that the air defense forces of the coalition spotted at 7:56 am on Friday morning, the launch of a ballistic missile from within the Yemeni territory in the direction of Najran in Saudi Arabia.

It comes after missiles were fired at Saudi airport King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh.

The Iran-backed rebels had fired a ballistic missile at Najran on January 5 that was also intercepted by the Saudi air defence.

Maliki said that the missile targeted civilian and populated areas.


Thursday's attack took to 88 the total number of such attacks by the militant group on Saudi Arabia since the start of the conflict in Yemen, KUNA added.

The area between Lahj and Taez provinces is one of several fronts where pro-government forces are advancing with support from the coalition, which includes the UAE.

Long-time enemies, former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and the Houthis joined ranks in 2014, driving Yemen's Saudi-backed government from the capital and setting up a parallel state.

"If the aggressors keep pushing toward Hodeidah and if the political solution hits wall, there are some strategic choices that will be taken as a no return point, including blocking the global navigation in the Red Sea", Houthis' Ansarullah political council chief, Saleh al-Samad, was quoted saying. Following that outrage Houthi's can not claim a national mantle.
