The Houthis have launched a Badr-1 missile at a military base in the Saudi province of Jizan on May 11 evening, Yemen’s official Saba news agency reported citing a military source.
According to the report, the missile was launched at the al-Darb military camp and successfully hit the designated target. There were no immidiate reports about casualties or inflicted damage.
According to pro-Saudi sources, the missile was intercepted.
However, the both sides failed to provide any photo or video evidence to confirm their claims.
The Houthis have increased their missile strikes on Saudi-linked targets inside Yemen and targets inside Saudi Arabia since the start of 2018. Some experts link the increased number of missile strikes with the general escalation in the Middle East that triggered the increase in Iranian-backed supplies to the Houthis.
