The Arab Coalition intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile and six explosive-laden drones launched by Yemen’s Houthis towards Saudi Arabia’s Jazan, Saudi's state-run al-Ekhbariya television said on Sunday.

This was the latest in a series of escalated aerial attacks on the Kingdom by the Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen.

Since January, Yemen’s Houthis have launched dozens of aerial attacks on Saudi Arabia targeting civilian areas and energy facilities in the Kingdom with explosive-laden drones and ballistic missiles.

Coalition Spokesperson Brigadier General Turki al-Maliki said: “The Houthi militia deliberately escalates hostile and terrorist targeting of civilians and civilian objects systematically… Those actions constitute war crimes.”
