Another missile attack : Saudi intercepted missile fired by Yemeni rebels

RIYADH (AFP) – Saudi air defences on Sunday intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Yemeni rebels at the kingdom s southern border city of Najran, which set a farm ablaze, state media said.

“Saudi forces were able to intercept (the missile),” the Saudi Press Agency said, citing the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iran-backed Huthi rebels.

“But the shrapnel scattered over residential areas and caused a fire at a farm belonging to a citizen, without causing any injuries.”

The missile was launched from Saada, the Huthi stronghold in northern Yemen, the coalition was cited as saying.

The coalition said another missile crashed in a Saudi desert on Sunday, without specifying a location, adding it caused no damage.

Sunday s strikes are the latest in a series of rebel bombardments on Saudi territory.
