SANAA, Yemen- Yemen's Shiite Houthi rebels, said Tuesday, they fired a ballistic missile at Jizan Economic City, in Saudi's south-western province of Jizan.

"The long-range ballistic missile, Badr 1, hit the Saudi economic city," the report said, citing a Houthi statement.

However, Saudi Arabia-owned Al Arabiya television, reported that, the Saudi air defence forces had intercepted the missile over Jizan, and destroyed it.

The television did not give further details or said if there are any casualties.

The Houthi missile strike was the latest, in a series of frequent attacks, against various areas in Saudi Arabia, which has led a military coalition to fight the Houthi rebels.

Most of the missiles have been intercepted by Saudi air defences.

Last week, the Houthi ballistic missile attack, targeted a Saudi military air base, in the southern Saudi border region of Asir.

Saudi Arabia has led an Arab coalition in the war against the Iranian-allied Shiite Houthis, since Mar, 2015, to support the Yemeni's exiled government.
