SANAA, Yemen- Yemen's Houthi rebels said, they fired a ballistic missile towards "a regional airport" at the Saudi border city of Jizan on Saturday.

The attack took place on Saturday night, the Houthis said.

The airport serves Jizan, the capital city of Jizan Province in Saudi Arabia.

It is also known as King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Airport, named after the late Saudi king.

Meanwhile, the Saudi air force, on Saturday night, intercepted and destroyed a missile fired from Yemen, towards the border city of Jizan, Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television reported.

The latest attack has brought the number of missiles shot from Yemen, targeting various Saudi cities to 198, said Al Arabiya.

Although the frequency of the missile attacks has increased recently, most of them were intercepted and destroyed without causing any injuries.

Saudi Arabia has been targeted by the Yemeni Houthi rebels, for having been leading a war against them, since 2015. The Houthis say their missile attacks were launched in response to the coalition air strikes, on Houthi-controlled lands in Yemen.
