An Israeli military spokesperson reported the interception of “a rocket launched towards the territory of the State of Israel above the Red Sea, using the ‘Arrow’ long-range defense system… The target did not, at any stage, enter the territory of the State of Israel”. A Huthi spokesperson claimed that they had launched “a batch of ballistic missiles” and drones against targets in Israel, while the group’s leader warned that “our eyes are open to constantly monitor and search for any Israeli ship in the Red Sea, especially in Bab al-Mandab, and near Yemeni regional waters”.
