The Houthis have fired a ballistic missile at the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait, about 160km from the Saudi-Yemeni border, the Saudi military said on February 5. According to the report, the missile was launched from the Yemeni province of Sa’adah and then was intercepted by Saudi Arabia’s air force.
Col. Turki Al-Maliki, a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, accused the Houthis of targeting civilian objects in Saudi Arabia with ballistic missiles.
The Houthis or media outlets linked to the movement have not yet commented on these claims. Previously, the Houthis had launched their missiles only at important infrastructure or military objects.
