The Saudi authorities said that the national forces intercepted a missile on Sunday while another landed in a desert area of the border city. The fragments of the destroyed missile fell on residential areas and caused a fire at a citizen’s farm without leaving any casualties.”Launching ballistic missiles at densely populated civilian areas is a direct breach of the principles of the international humanitarian law,” the official spokesman of the Saudi-led Alliance Colonel Turki Al-Malki said.

Al Masirah TV, run by Yemen’s Houthis, said earlier the group had targeted a distribution facility in the city belonging to state oil giant Saudi Aramco. There was no immediate comment from the company.
