 Yemen's Houthis launch missile toward Mecca

Yemen's Houthi militia launched a ballistic missile toward Mecca, the Saudi-led coalition intervening in Yemen's civil war said.

Coalition forces destroyed the missile 65 km from the holy city without damage and retaliated against the launch site inside Yemen, the statement said. 

The Houthis confirmed the launch of a Burkan-1 ballistic missile into Saudi Arabia in a statement to their official news agency on Friday but said it targeted King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, the kingdom's busiest airport, Reuters reports.
