Ksa Intercepts Ballistic Missile; Indian Resident Injured by Shrapnel

The Saudi royal air defence today intercepted a ballistic missile which was launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militias from the Yemeni territories.

In a statement carried by state news agency SPA the coalition said that according to initial findings an Indian resident was injured by falling debris after the missile was intercepted.

The Patriot surface to air missile intercepted the missile 10.16 am as it was heading to target the province of Najran, said the Saudi-led Alliance Official Spokesman Colonel Turki Al-Malki.

Last week, Saudi air defence forces intercepted a flurry of missiles, and falling debris caused the first death in the capital Riyadh.
