The Saudi Civil Defense announced on Tuesday that three women injured from shrapnel; it came from a projectile fired by the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen towards the Kingdom.

Civil Defense spokesman in the southwestern Jazan region, Mohammed al-Ghamdi also said the Houthis had fired a projectile towards Saudi border villages.

This ensuing shrapnel damaged a house and slightly wounded three women. They have since been transferred to hospital and they are in stable condition, he added.

It is noteworthy that UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths earlier expressed his grave disappointment. This was after the Iran-backed Houthi militias fired ballistic missiles towards civilian targets in Riyadh and Jizan in Saudi Arabia.
