Saudi air defense shoots down missile fired from Yemen

Posted:

(ABC) -- The Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen says Saudi air defense forces have shot down a ballistic missile fired at the kingdom from Yemen.

A statement issued by the coalition says the missile targeted the southwestern city of Khamis Mushait but was intercepted before dawn on Monday. It says the coalition air force struck the missile's launching pad area.

No damage or casualties were reported.

The Saudi-led coalition backs Yemen's internationally recognized government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi against the country's Shiite rebels known Houthis and their allies, former President Ali Abdullah Saleh's loyalists.

The rebels, who control Yemen's capital, Sanaa, are known to have seized a stockpile of Soviet-era Scud missiles.
