CAIRO (1) - The Saudi-led coalition combating in Yemen stated early on Sunday that the dominion’s air defenses intercepted two ballistic missiles on Saturday evening launched by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group towards Riyadh and the town of Jizan, Saudi state information company (SPA) stated citing the coalition’s spokesman.
The coalition’s spokesman, Colonel Turki al-Malki, stated in an announcement that no fatalities had been recorded to date. He stated destroying the missiles brought about some shrapnel to fall on residential neighborhoods within the two cities, SPA reported.
The spokesman added that firing missiles at the moment by the Houthis and Iranian Revolutionary Guards confirmed the true risk the group and Iranian regime supporting it pose, including that this escalation doesn't mirror the group’s announcement that it's welcoming a ceasefire.
