SANAA -- Yemen's Houthi rebels fired two ballistic missiles toward an oil facility in the Saudi border city of Jizan on Sunday, the Houthi controlled Saba news agency reported.

Meanwhile, the Saudi state Al Arabiya TV station said Saudi air defence forces intercepted the two missiles and destroyed them, Xinhua news agency reported.

It is the latest in a spate of Houthi missile attacks on targets in Saudi Arabia, as the Saudi-led war against the Houthi rebels enters the third year.

In March 2015, Saudi Arabia led a military coalition of Arab forces, backed by the United States, to intervene in the conflict to back the government of exiled Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The coalition had launched thousands of air strikes on the Houths in attempts to roll back the rebels and reinstate Hadi in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen.

In response, the Houthis fired dozens of ballistic missiles toward Saudi cities, with most of them intercepted by Saudi air defence forces.

The conflict has killed over 10,000 Yemenis and pushed the Arab country to the brink of famine.
