Yemen is in the grip of a brutal civil war

The ballistic missile was sacked from the northern Yemeni province of Amran towards Saudi Arabia on Wednesday night, said a coalition statement published by the official Saudi Press Agency.

The attack marks the second ballistic missile fired by the rebels this week.

There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

The ballistic missile was sacked from the northern Yemeni province of Amran towards the southern Saudi city of Jizan, said a coalition statement published by the official Saudi Press Agency.

Three civilians were killed in Jizan in June from a Houthi missile deliberately targeting civilians, according to the coalition.

Wrong Tommy Fleetwood gets paid over US$150000 for Open Championship
Here's how Thorner thinks the mistake took place: his friend Tommy Fleetwood played briefly on the European PGA Tour. I wouldn't even know if I'd been paid or not because I don't really look.

The Houthis have fired dozens of missiles into the Kingdom in recent months, part of a three-year-old conflict widely seen as a proxy battle between regional rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran.

In 2014, the Houthis overran the Yemeni capital and seized control of much of northern Yemen as well as a string of ports on the Red Sea.

Saudi Arabia and some of its allies, particularly the United Arab Emirates, launched a brutal war, code-named Operation Decisive Storm, against Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, and crush the popular Ansarullah movement.

So far, almost 10,000 people have died in the war in Yemen, which has unleashed what the United Nations describes as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
