SANAA, Yemen, Yemen's Houthi movement said, it fired a ballistic missile towards a regional airport in Saudi border province of Jizan, Saba news agency reported.

Houthis said, the missile is a short-range one, giving no further details.

However, Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV channel reported that, the Saudi defence forces shot down the missile over Jizan.

It is the sixth ballistic missile attack by the Yemeni Houthi rebels, in two months.

Last week, Houthis fired a long-range ballistic missile, towards a military airport of Apache helicopters, at the Saudi Special Forces camp, in the Saudi border province of Najran.

Also last week, the Houthis threatened to cut off the Red Sea shipping line, if the Saudi-led coalition forces keep advancing towards the Yemeni port of Hodeidah, according to the Houthi-controlled Saba news agency.

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

The coalition has launched thousands of air strikes on the Houthis, in attempts to roll back rebel gains and reinstate Hadi in the capital Sanaa.
