RIYADH, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- The Saudi-led coalition involved in a war in Yemen announced on Friday the interception of a missile shot by Houthi militias in Yemen toward border city Jazan.
The missile was spotted on Thursday evening and intercepted and destroyed by the Saudi air forces without reporting any injuries, said Turki Al Maliki, coalition spokesperson, in a statement through Saudi Press Agency.
The coalition announced on Wednesday that 23 civilians were injured after shrapnel of an intercepted missile fell on them in Najran.
The two cities Jazan and Najran have been targeted by a total of 190 missiles since the beginning of the war in 2015. Most of them were intercepted without reporting injuries or damages.
The spokesperson warned that the militias and those who transport missiles will not escape "punishment."
