A UAE Patriot missile system has shot down two ballistic missiles fired at Yemeni military targets by Houthi rebels in the province of Marib.

The first missile was shot down late on Friday in the Al Gofainah area, where there are military camps of soldiers loyal to president Abdrabu Mansur Hadi, Brigadier General Murad Turaiq, the commander of the Yemeni military in Marib and Bayda provinces, told The National on Saturday.

He said the second missile was shot down over the control and operations building for military camps in both Marib and neighbouring Al Jawf province. Neither missile reached their intended target and there were no casualties. […]
