Saudi Arabia has intercepted three ballistic missiles over the southwestern province of Najran, the Saudi Al-Arabiya said Tuesday.

"Saudi air defense intercepted today three ballistic missiles over Najran fired by the Houthi militias," the TV channel quoted unnamed sources as saying, without further details.

Earlier on Tuesday, the rebel group said it had fired a set of Badr1 ballistic missiles atmilitary targets in the regional airport of Najran and other military targets.

No immediate comments have be released by the Kingdom or the Saudi-led coalition on the attacks.

Yemen has been racked by an armed conflict that broke out after the Iranian-backed Houthis had ousted the internationally-recognized government late in 2014.

The conflict escalated after a Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in the country in March 2015 to reinstate the government of President Hadi,leaving tens of thousands killed, hundreds of thousands injured, and 3 million displaced.

Since mid-May 2019, Houthis have intensified firing ballistic missiles and drones on Saudi territory andcoalition forces "in reply to coalition airstrikes that target Yemeni civilians and infrastructure."
