"The Yemeni armed forces will continue to carry out missile and drone attacks until Israeli aggression stops."
The Israeli army intercepted cruise missiles and a ballistic missile fired by Houthi rebels from the Red Sea region.
“A surface-to-surface missile was fired towards Israeli territory from the Red Sea area and was successfully intercepted by the Arrow air defense system, even before it entered Israeli territory,” said the statement the IDF released on the incident.
“Air Force detection systems tracked the trajectory of the missile and it was intercepted at the most appropriate operational time and location,” the IDF said.
The shooting was claimed by Houthi rebels, who said such attacks on Israel would continue. Earlier in the morning, they also launched drones towards the territory of Israel.
