CAIRO (Reuters) – Houthi forces fighting a Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen have fired a missile over the border targeting the Jizan Industrial City in southern Saudi Arabia, the Houthi’s Al-Masirah TV station on Saturday.
There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.
“The rocket force fired a Badr ballistic missile at the Industrial City of Jizan,” Al-Masirah said, without saying when the attack took place.
The Iran-aligned Houthis regularly announce they have fired missiles over the Saudi-Yemeni border into Jizan province in an effort to hit important facilities, including an oil refinery operated by Saudi Aramco.
The Houthis say their missile attacks on the kingdom are in retaliation for air raids on Yemen by the Western-backed coalition, which entered Yemen’s war in 2015 to try to restore President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
Hadi was ousted from the capital Sanaa by the Houthis in 2015.
