Riyadh, The Official Spokesman of the Coalition "Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen" Col. Turki Al Malki stated that at (13:39) today, Saudi Royal Air Defense Forces monitored the launch of a ballistic missile launched by the Iran-backed Houthi Militias from inside Yemeni territories (Saada Province) towards the Kingdom's territories.

?Col. Turki Al Malki explained that the missile was heading towards the city of Jazan and was deliberately launched to target civilian and populated areas. The missile fell in a remote area. The incident resulted only in a light injury of a Pakistani expatriate.

?Col. Al-Turki added "this hostile act by the Iran-backed Houthi militias proves the continuing involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Houthi militias equipped with qualitative capabilities in a flagrant and explicit violation of the two UN resolutions No. 2216 and 2231 aiming to threaten the security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as the regional and international security and that launching ballistic missiles towards densely populated cities and villages is considered contradictory to the humanitarian international law".
