According to Al Masirah TV, which is run by the Houthis, the missile was aimed at the defense ministry.

"The air force announced the execution of air strikes with the Qasef-1 aircraft on Aramco in Jizan", it said on its Twitter page.

The group unveiled what it said was a series of drones, including the Qasef-1, at a ceremony a year ago. "This hearing will allow members to examine United States policy toward the Middle East as we grapple with these conflicts and approach a key deadline for the Iran nuclear agreement", he said.
