The Houthi group (Ansar Allah) said on Tuesday that it fired barrage of Badr-1 ballistic missiles at military targets in Najran, southern Saudi Arabia.

Houthi forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree  said in a statement that the group's missile force "fired a ballistic missile, Badr-1  at military targets at Najran Regional Airport and other military targets."

Saree said: "The missiles hit their targets with high accuracy, pointing out that the airport got out of service."

Neither Saudi Arabia nor Saudi-led military coalition has commented on Houthi claims yet.

The spokesman pointed out that the attack comes in response to the aggression crimes, ongoing siege on the Yemeni people and continuous raids, which amounted during the past hours 52 air raids.

He added that the targeting process is consistent with international humanitarian law and its customary rules, pointing out that all necessary and preventive measures are taken to protect civilians.

Since mid-May 2019, Houthis have intensified firing ballistic missiles and launching drone attacks on Saudi territory "in reply to coalition airstrikes that target Yemeni civilians and infrastructure."

Yemen has been devastated by a five-year armed conflict between the government backed a Saudi-led coalition and the Iran-backed Houthis who are still controlling most of the most densely populated regions in the north.
