SANAA, Yemen, Yemen's Houthi rebels, fired a ballistic missile, towards a Saudi Arabian military base, in the kingdom's southern border region of Najran, the Shiite rebels said, in a statement.

"The Badr-1-P ballistic missile targeted a gathering of Saudi troops, in the military base in Bir Askar area," according to the statement, released by the rebel-controlled news agency.

The statement said, the missile hit the target accurately. There was no comment yet from Saudi government.

The attack on Saudi Arabia was the second in two days, after Sunday's drone attack hit a Saudi military base, in the Saudi border city of Jizan, according to the rebel statement.

On Friday, the Saudi-led Arab coalition said, it destroyed a control centre, used to direct drones of the Houthi militia, the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television reported, without providing further details.

Friday's coalition strike came, a day after the rebels launched a deadly drone attack on the Yemeni government military parade, in the southern province of Lahj that killed six senior military leaders, including the military intelligence chief, Mohammed Tammah.

A fragile cease-fire deal, in the lifeline Hodeidah port city was hardly reached between the Yemeni rival parties, in the UN-brokered peace negotiations in Stockholm, Sweden, last month.

UNs' Special Envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths told the Security Council that, his team will continue to cement the truce in Hodeidah and will move forward to achieve a comprehensive peace agreement.
