Saudi intercepts another missile from Yemen

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said on Wednesday that Saudi Arabia's air defence had intercepted a missile that the armed Houthi movement said it fired at storage tanks belonging to Saudi Aramco oil company.

Debris fell on residential areas when the missile, launched towards the southwestern Saudi Arabian port of Jizan, was destroyed around 2130 but there were no reported casualties or damage.

Tensions have risen in recent days after the Houthis, who control most of northern Yemen, launched a series of missile strikes on Saudi Arabia which the coalition said were intercepted.
