Saudis shoot down missile over Jazan

State TV reports ballistic missile shot down, as Al Houthis claim they fired it

Saudi air defences intercepted and destroyed fired by Yemen's Al Houthi movement over the southern city of Jazan, the Saudi-led coalition said on Monday.

Earlier, the Houthis said the group had fired a Badr-1 ballistic missile at Jazan's airport, without giving any further details.

Coalition spokesman Turki Al Malki said Saudi air defence forces destroyed the missile over Jazan and accused the Houthis of targeting residential areas, according to a report from the official Saudi Press Agency.
