On July 18, Spokesman for the Arab Coalition Col. Turki Al-Malki announced that Saudi air defense forces had “monitored a ballistic missile”. Most reports indicated the city of Najran as the target. No Houthi sources corroborate the missile launch or intercept.

On July 19, Al-Malki announced that another ballistic missile targeting Jizan, Saudi Arabia, was intercepted without casualties. Houthi media confirmed the launch but claimed the Badr-1 missile successfully struck the Jizan airport.

At least three Houthi missiles have entered KSA territory over the past week (July 12-19).
