Reported Killed in Missile Attack in Saudi Arabia

The UN and aid agencies have pleaded with the Saudi-led force against an attack on Hodeida, warning that it could lead to mass civilian casualties and starvation.

The coalition said it would retaliate against anyone who threatens the safety of its citizens and residents.

"The terrorist Iranian-Houthi militia has targeted civilians with a projectile" killing three civilians in Jazan, coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said.

On Tuesday, Saudi air defences intercepted a ballistic missile that targeted the western city of Yanbu after being fired from rebel-held territory in Yemen.

At least two ballistic missiles were destroyed in April targeting the Saudi province of Jizan, bordering Yemen, which has been engulfed in a violent conflict between the government headed by Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and the Houthi movement, also known as Ansar Allah, since early 2015.

The attack came as coalition-backed Yemeni forces advanced on the rebel-held Red Sea port of Hudaida, the main conduit for humanitarian supplies into a country teetering on the brink of starvation.

The Saudi-led coalition, which includes the UAE, intervened in the Yemen war in 2015 at the request of Mr Hadi's government.

The war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced three million and unleashed the world's most urgent humanitarian crisis in the impoverished Arab state which is struggling with a starvation and cholera epidemic, according to the United Nations.
