The Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen’s Houthi movement said on Monday that ballistic missile attacks on Saudi Arabia were a serious escalation and threat to regional and international security.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki told a news conference in Riyadh that Sunday’s missile attacks on the Saudi capital were a clear violation of international law and accused the Houthis of smuggling weapons from Saudi Arabia’s arch-rival Iran.
