Saudi Arabia’s air defense says they have intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Houthi militias towards the border city of Najran.

Authorities confirmed that forces intercepted one missile on Sunday while another landed in a secluded desert area of the border city.

The southern city of Najran – close to the border with Yemen, has borne the brunt ever since the Houthi militia forces took over swathes of the country in a 2014 coup.

According to officials, the city has witnessed more than 10,000 rocket attacks mostly arbitrarily targeting civilians since the conflict in Yemen first began.
