SANAA-- Yemen's Houthi rebels said they fired a ballistic missile toward Saudi Arabia's border city of Jizan on Monday, Houthi-controlled Saba news agency reported.

Meanwhile, the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television reported that the Saudi air defenses intercepted and destroyed the ballistic missile over Jizan.

No further details were provided by either sides.

On Sunday, the Houthis said they launched missile and drone attacks on military targets inside Jizan.

Yemen has been locked in a civil war since late 2014, when the Houthi rebels overran much of the country and seized all northern provinces, including the capital Sanaa.

Saudi Arabia is leading an Arab military coalition that intervened in the Yemeni war in 2015 to support the Yemeni elected government of exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The war has so far killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, and displaced about 3 million others.
