DUBAI: Yemen’s Huthis said Thursday they fired a ballistic missile at Saudi Arabia and hit a military target, in the second such attack this month, after threatening to retaliate over a crippling blockade.

“We confirm the success of our ballistic missile trial, which hit its military target inside Saudi Arabia ,” the Huthi-run Al-Masira television channel said.

A spokesman for the Saudi-led military coalition fighting the Huthis in Yemen did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Earlier, rebel chief Abdulmalik al-Huthi warned against “prolonging the blockade” imposed on Yemen following a November 4 Huthi missile attack that was intercepted near Riyadh international airport.
