Yemen’s Houthis say they targeted a military site on Israel’s port city of Eilat with a new ballistic missile, the Iranian-backed group’s military spokesperson Yahya Saree said Monday.

The Houthis, which control the most populous parts of Yemen and are aligned with Iran, have attacked ships off its coast for months, saying it is acting in solidarity with Palestinians fighting Israel in Gaza.

The group targeted the military site “with a ballistic missile ‘Palestine’ that is being revealed today for the first time, and the operation has successfully achieved its objective,” Saree said in a televised address.
