Houthi Rebels Announce the Launch of 'Ballistic Missile' into Saudi Arabia

Al Masirah television, controlled by the Houthis, said the second missile was launched against forces loyal to President Abd Rabbo Mansur Hadi along the western coast of Yemen.

Saudi Arabia, which has been targeted by multiple rocket attacks in recent weeks, has blamed its regional rival Iran for arming the Shiite Huthis in the Yemen War.

On Friday, coalition spokesman Turki al-Maliki said the foiled missile attack served as further proof that Iran had armed the rebels.

The spokesperson described the attack as "hostile" and accused Iran of supporting Houthi militias. The scattered fragments of the shot down missile caused minor damage to private property of a citizen in the Najran region while there was no loss of life, according to Col.

The kingdom denounced the threat of "Iranian-manufactured ballistic weapons" after it intercepted a ballistic missile fired from Yemen over Riyadh in December.

Al-Malki, earlier, in his weekly press conference at the headquarters of King Salman Air Base in Riyadh said the legitimate government in Yemen enjoys superiority at the grass roots and political levels He added that the Arab Coalition forces still held superiority in the battlefield within Yemen and on its border with Saudi Arabia. Tehran rejected the evidence as "fabricated".

The missile was the fourth to be fired by Yemeni rebels into Saudi Arabia in three months.

Despite the coalition's superior firepower, the rebels still control the capital and much of the north of the country.

Yemen's stalemated civil war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced 3 million and pushed the country to the brink of starvation.
