Update : 24 Jan 2022, 14:14

A Bangladeshi origin Saudi resident suffered minor injuries when a ballistic missile fired by the Iran-aligned Houthi movement fell in the south of Saudi Arabia, a Saudi-led coalition reported on Sunday.

The attack also left a Sudanese, residing in Saudi Arabia, injured, reports the Khaleej Times. 

A number of workshops and civilian vehicles were damaged in the attack which targeted the industrial zone of Ahad al Masarihah in south-western Saudi Arabia, the state news agency SPA said.

The coalition called the attack "vicious and brutal" and said it would be dealt with firmly. 

Early Monday statements by the coalition reported they had knocked down a ballistic missile that was launched toward Dhahran Al-Janub in the Kingdom’s Asir province.

Falling debris caused damage to workshops and civilian vehicles in the area.

They also said that a launchpad used by the militia group on Monday morning had been taken out by coalition strikes.

This was the third Houthi attempt to target civilians of different nationalities in the industrial area situated in the Kingdom's south western region, the coalition said.
