Sana'a- The Saudi air defense intercepted a Scud missile fired from Yemen Houthis early Sunday, Saudi media reported on Sunday.
"The Saudi air defense destroyed a Scud missile which was heading to Najran to the south of Kingdom," said Saudi Al-Akhbaria TV channel.
According to the source, the missile was damaged before hitting its target.
Houthis late Saturday announced firing a ballistic missile aimed at the military camp of Saudi national guard in Najran to the south of Saudi Arabia.
Houthis have intensified shelling of Saudi border areas in line with Arab coalition airstrikes that bomb the militants in several areas of Yemen. Last week, Houthis said they have 300 new Saudi locations among their target in Saudi Arabia.
Fire exchange began after Saudi Arabia led an Arab coalition against the Iran-backed Houthis who toppled president Abd Rabu Mansour Hadi, forcing him into exile in March.
