SAUDI UNIVERSITY CATCHES FIRE NEAR YEMEN BORDER IN ATTACK
JEDDAH (Saudi Arabia): A Saudi university near the country’s border with Yemen caught fire early Thursday after the kingdom’s air defences intercepted a barrage of ballistic missiles and bomb-laden drones. The interception scattered debris on Jizan University’s campus, which caused a fire that has been contained, the Saudi-led coalition at war in Yemen said in a statement. It said no one was killed, and there were no immediate reports of injuries. The statement blamed the Iran-backed Houthi group for the attack, saying the five ballistic missiles and four bomb-laden drones specifically targeted civilian areas and had been launched from the rebels’ stronghold of Saada in Yemen.
