Saudi ‘Patriot’ SAMs intercept ballistic missiles fired by Yemen’s Houthi over Asir region

Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces intercepted four ballistic missiles launched by Houthi insurgents in Yemen toward the Saudi cities of Khamis Mushayt and Abha early Tuesday, the Saudi-led Arab Coalition said.

In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency, the Coalition command said the missiles were shot down and destroyed at 6:30 a.m. without causing any damage.
