  • 3 Reported Killed in Missile Attack in Saudi Arabia

Three civilians have been killed when a Houthi missile fired from Yemen hit the town of Jizan, in southern Saudi Arabia.

The RSADF has repeatedly intercepted ballistic missiles launched by the Houthis to target Saudi civilian and populated areas. "These senseless actions of the terrorist Iranian-Houthi militia fall under hostile acts against civilians".

The coalition said it would retaliate against anyone who threatened the safety of its citizens and residents.

The state-run Saudi Press Agency quoted military coalition spokesman Col.

"The emir said in his note that these repeated hostile actions target the safety and security of the kingdom, its people and residents and violate global laws", said the report.


It came as coalition-backed Yemeni forces advance on the rebel-held Red Sea port of Hodeida, the main conduit for humanitarian supplies into a country teetering on the brink of starvation. He also said that the missiles were heading towards the Najran city of Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia launched a war against the Houthis in March 2015, backing Yemen's internationally recognized government after the rebels drove them from the capital, Sanaa.

Saudi Arabia last month tested a new siren system for the capital Riyadh and the oil-rich Eastern Province, in a sign of the increasing threat posed by the rebels' arms.

Separately, an army officer was assassinated in Taez city on Saturday evening by masked gunmen on a motorcycle.
