Saudis shoot down Yemeni rebel missile near Khamis Mushayit

A ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Houthi rebels into Saudi Arabia was shot down on Thursday near the south-western city of Khamis Mushait, the Saudi-owned al-Arabiya channel reported. It was the second ballistic missile fired from Yemen this month, after an earlier rocket was brought down near King Khaled Airport on the northern outskirts of the capital Riyadh. A Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iranian-backed  Houthis in Yemen has closed air, land and sea access to cut off Iranian arms supplies.
