BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – The Houthis (var. Ansarallah) launched a ballistic missile towards a Saudi airport near the Yemeni border last night.

According to the official media wing of the Houthis, their rocket battalion fired a ballistic missile at the Abha Regional Airport in southern Saudi Arabia.

The Houthis claimed their missile struck the Abha Airport; however, this has not been corroborated by the Saudi Ministry of Defense.

The move comes after Saudi Arabia’s air defense forces intercepted two drones launched by insurgents from the Ansar Allah movement, the Houthis, on its military air base on the Saudi southern border, a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition said Wednesday.
