The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen said on Thursday it had destroyed a ballistic missile fired towards Jazan in the south of Saudi Arabia by the Houthi militias.

Spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said earlier Thursday that the Arab Coalition destroyed a drone launched by the Houthis towards the southern Saudi city of Khamis Mushait.

He reiterated that the Arab Coalition was taking the necessary measures to protect civilians in line with international humanitarian law.
