On December 21, the Saudi-led coalition intercepted a ballistic missile that had been fired by the Houthis, according to the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV. The Saudi-led coalition claimed that the missile was on it way to hit the city of Ma’rib in northeastern Yemen.

However, the Houthis didn’t announce that they launched any ballistic missiles or heavy rockets on December 21. So, the Saudi-led coalition claim could be a propaganda stunt that’s aimed at increasing the political pressure on the Houthis.

The Houthis launched a Burkan-2 ballistic missile at the Saudi capital, Riyadh on December 19. Back then the Saudi-led coalition claimed that the missile was intercepted.

In a related development, Houthis fighters continued defending their positions around the coastal town of Mocha in the western Taiz governorate.

On December 21, the Houthis attacked several positions of the Saudi-led coalition and pro-Hadi forces around Mocha, according to Yemeni sources. During the attack Houthis fighters destroyed two vehicles of pro-Hadi forces with rocket-propelled grenades and other two armored vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition with ATGMs.

The Saudi-led coalition forces are now partly besieged north of Mocha due to the strong resistance of the Houthis that are trying to captured all the positions they lost between Mocha and the port city of al-Hudaydah.
