Houthi Projectile Kills Two in Saudi Jazan – Saudi State Media | World News

CAIRO (Reuters) – A Saudi citizen and a Yemeni resident were killed as a result of a Houthi projectile that hit the southern Saudi city of Jazan on Friday, Saudi state media reported citing a coalition statement.

The Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iran-aligned Houthis in Yemen carried an attack later on Friday to address what it called as “the attacks origins” and said it will follow that with a wider attack over Houthi military targets.

Another Houthi Projectile hit Saudi’s Najran causing materialistic damage.

Houthi’s Friday’s cross-border attacks come after the coalition struck a Houthi military camp in the center of the Yemeni Capital Sanaa early on Friday.

Residents told Reuters that explosions had rocked Sanaa as a result of the coalition strikes.
