    Saudi air defense intercepts Houthi scud missile

    The Saudi air defense on Saturday intercepted a scud missile fired by Houthi militias and supporters of deposed President Ali Abdullah Saleh toward the southwestern Saudi city of Khamis Mushait.

    According to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), the Kingdom’s air defense destroyed the projectile with a patriot missile.

    The air defense also destroyed a missile launch pad located in Yemen’s northwestern city of Saada.

    The operation comes a day after Saudi forces repelled an attack by Houthi militias and loyalists to Saleh targeting the kingdom’s southern city of Najran.
