Saudi forces on Tuesday dropped a ballistic missile fired by the Yemeni Houthi group on the southern Jizan region, state television reported.

The channel gave no further details and there were no reports of damage or damage.

Houthis allied with Iran launched a number of rockets into the kingdom, and although these rockets did not cause real damage, they contributed to fueling tensions between Riyadh and its rival Tehran.

Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of supplying the Houthis with missile parts and expertise, a charge Tehran denies. The Houthis controlled the Yemeni capital of Sanaa and other parts of the country during the civil war.

Saudi Arabia has been leading a coalition fighting the Houthis in Yemen since March 2015 after the movement pushed Yemeni President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi to live outside the country.
