Saudi Arabia intercepts multiple missiles and drones; 2 children injured

Saudi Arabia’s air defenses have intercepted and destroyed three ballistic missiles and three explosive-laden drones launched by the Iran-backed Houthis militia towards the eastern region, Jazan and Najran on Saturday.

All of the missiles and drones were intercepted and destroyed, but falling debris from the missile that was shot down in the Eastern Province injured a boy and a girl in Dammam city, the Arab coalition supporting Yemen’s legitimate government said early Sunday.

Falling debris also caused slight damage to 14 residential houses, coalition spokesman Brigadier General Turki Al-Maliki said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
