Houthi rebels in Yemen fired a "projectile" at the southwestern Saudi province of Jizan, killing three civilians on Saturday, the Saudi-led coalition opposed to the Houthis said. The brigade was also involved in an ambush of the Houthi rebels in southern Hodeidah province in which at least 45 rebels were killed, including a high-ranking officer, spokesman Aseel Al Sakladi told The National.

He claimed that the missiles were launched to deliberately target civilians.

Clashes between troops backed by a Saudi-led coalition and the Iran-aligned Houthis intensified near Yemen's Hodeidah over the weekend as the United Nations tries to negotiate a ceasefire to avert a possible assault on the main port city, military sources said.

Last month, the group fired a salvo of missiles at the capital Riyadh, saying it was targeting economic targets.

On Tuesday, Riyadh's air defence systems intercepted a Houthi missile fired from Yemen at the Saudi city of Yanbu, north of Mecca and Jeddah.

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 latest strike at Saudi Arabia comes as Yemeni forces, backed by the coalition, advance on the rebel-held Red Sea port of Hodeidah, the main conduit for humanitarian supplies into a country on the brink of starvation.

In late May, air defenses intercepted Houthi missiles over the southern cities of Najran and Jizan but there were no casualties.

Riyadh accuses its regional rival Tehran of supplying the Houthis with ballistic missiles, a charge Iran denies.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other Arab joined the Yemen war in March 2015, to help support the Yemeni government which had fled the capital Sanaa in 2014.

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.
