Indo Asian News Service

Riyadh, March 28 (IANS) Saudi forces have destroyed four ballistic missiles launched from Yemen which targetted two border cities, media reported on Tuesday.

Abha and Khamis Mushait are among other border areas that have been targeted in such attacks since the beginning of the Saudi-led war against Houthi militias in Yemen that completed two years this week, Xinhua news agency reported.

Most of those missiles were destroyed before they could reach the ground, while tens of civilians died in such attacks.

Besides the interception, Saudi Arabia usually destroyed the launchers of those missiles through airstrikes.

The war shows no signs of ending, especially after the recent development of the planting of sea mines in the Red Sea by Houthis.
