The Saudi-led Arab coalition said on Sunday that the Houthi militias launched a ballistic missile from Sanaa which shortly fell in Yemen’s Saada governorate.

“The  Iran-backed, Houthi militia launched a ballistic missile from Sanaa on Sunday. The missile fell short (159) km after launch in Yemeni soil in Saada governorate,” read a statement by the Coalition’s Spokesman colonel Turki Al-Maliki.The Houthi militia continues its flagrant violations of the International Humanitarian Law by launching ballistic missiles that fall indiscriminately on civilians and population centers, threatening the lives of hundreds of innocent civilians.
Maliki stressed that the Coalition will continue to undertake all deterrent, rigorous measures to protect civilians in Yemen, and safeguard regional and international security.
