Baku, March 2, AZERTAC
Five Saudi civilians were injured Tuesday when a projectile fired by Houthi rebels in Yemen struck the southern Saudi region of Jazan, according to Anadolu Agency.
Mohammed Al-Ghamdi, spokesman for the Civil Defense in Jazan, said the projectile hit a border village in Jazan, according to the official SPA News Agency.
“The military projectile had fallen on a public street, resulting in five civilians -- three Saudis and two Yemeni -- being injured," Al-Ghamdi said.
Material damage was reported.
There was no comment from the Houthi group, but the rebel movement regularly announces rocket and drone attacks on Saudi territories, saying they are a reaction to the Saudi-led coalition’s assault on Yemen.
