Saudi air defense forces have destroyed a ballistic missile fired by the Houthi militias at the south border of the county, Al Arabiya local news reported on Monday.

The missile targeted Khamis Mushait, a city in southwest Saudi Arabia, located east of Abha, the provincial seat of the Asir province.

Saudi forces are continuing their military operations to counter attempts by the Houthi militia to infiltrate the border between Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The country is leading a coalition involved in a three-year war against Houthis in Yemen. 

According to Al Arabiya, in the past two days, 50 air raids have been carried out by the coalition, targeting Houthi militia positions in the provinces of Sa'ada, Hajjah, Hodeidah and Taiz, resulting in multiple deaths, injuries and the destruction of arms stores.
