Yemen’s Houthis claim to launch ‘batch’ of missiles toward southern Israel

Yemen’s Houthi rebels claim they launched a “batch of ballistic missiles” targeting “various sensitive targets” in southern Israel, including the area of the city of Eilat.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Houthi spokesperson Yahya Saree claims the missiles hit their targets “despite the enemy’s secrecy about this.” There have been no reports about explosions apart from a drone that crashed earlier today in a school in Eilat, an incident that Saree doesn’t mention in the statement.

Saree says the Houthis will keep carrying out military actions to support the “oppressed Palestinian people” until the “Israeli aggression” in Gaza stops.

Earlier today, Israel said the Arrow air defense system successfully intercepted a long-range missile fired over the Red Sea toward Eilat.
