Saudi-led coalition intercepted ballistic rocket targeting Jazan

The Saudi-led coalition said on Wednesday it intercepted and destroyed a ballistic rocket targeting Saudi Arabia's Jazan and that it countered a hostile threat targeting civilians in the kingdom by destroying two targets in the air launched by Yemen's Houthis, the state TV reported.

The Saudi-led coalition said it destroyed six explosive-laden drones launched by Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi group in the direction of the kingdom, Saudi state TV said earlier on Wednesday.
