YEMEN’S HOUTHIS FIRE BALLISTIC MISSILE AT SAUDI BORDER MILITARY BASE

Yemen's Shiite Houthi fighters, said late on Saturday, that, they fired a ballistic missile deep into the Saudi border city of Khamis Mushait, targeting the Allamuza military base.

According to a statement, the missile hit the target accurately.

Houthis said, the missile fire came in "retaliatory response to the Saudi-led continuing air strikes on Yemeni cities."

Khamis Mushait city is located in the Asir region, adjacent to Yemen's northern border.

However, the Saudi-owned Alarabiya satellite TV channel, reported that, the Saudi defence forces intercepted and destroyed the missile in the air, before it reached the Saudi city.

It was the latest in a series of ballistic missile attacks by the Houthis, who dominate most part of northern Yemen, against Saudi border cities, since Mar, 2015.

It was reported, dozens of air strikes, over the past 24 hours, were fired by the Saudi-led war planes against targets across northern Yemeni cities, including the capital Sanaa, northern provinces of Hajja and Saada and south-western province of Taiz.

The civil war, ground battles and air strikes have already killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, half of them civilians, injured more than 35,000 others and displaced over three million, according to humanitarian agencies.
