On June 19, KSA Air Defense forces intercepted a Houthi-launched Badr-1 ballistic missile targeting the southern city of Abha. Although Saudi reports say the missile aimed at Khamis Mushait, Houthi media sources say the missile targeted the Saudi Aramco facility in Abha. No casualties or injuries were reported. The missile launch is one of many in the past few weeks, as Arab coalition forces prepare to capture the Houthi-held port of Hodeidah.
