Najran- A missile deployed from Yemen targeted southern Saudi Arabia’s Najran on Sunday killing six civilians. The projectile landed on a local water facility.
Security forces soon locked down the site attacked, moving injured victims to close medical facilities.
Najran is a city located in southwestern Saudi Arabia near the border with Yemen. It is the capital of Najran Province.
Saudi royal air forces had already intercepted a scud missile on Saturday, which was launched from Yemeni grounds targeting Khamis Mushait, south-west Saudi Arabia, located east of Abha.
The Launchpad was immediately destroyed.
Saudi-led coalition had intervened in the civil war in Yemen since March last year as to restore legitimacy to the war-torn country, after the Houthis insurgent militia have attempted to take over Yemen.
The war has killed more than 6,500 people, displaced more than 2.5 million and caused a humanitarian catastrophe in one of the world’s poorest countries.
