Party of Yemen's slain Saleh elects new chief

Yemen's Houthi rebel group has reportedly announced that its fighters had launched a "ballistic missile" at a military installation inside next-door Saudi Arabia.

Saudi state television instead said that the missile was intercepted over the southern Saudi region of Najran at the border with Yemen.

"The Houthis' artillery unit has said a short-range ballistic missile was successfully test-fired at a military target inside Saudi territory", the Houthi-run Al-Masirah televised channel reported Friday.

Saudi Arabia, which has been targeted by multiple rocket attacks in recent weeks, has blamed its regional rival Iran for arming the Shiite Huthis in the Yemen War.

Al-Maliki said that this hostile action by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias proves the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Houthi armed militias in clear and explicit defiance of the United Nations resolutions 2216 and 2231.

The scattered fragments of the missile caused minor damage to a private property, while no injuries were reported.

A confidential report to the UN Security Council the same month said UN officials had examined debris from missiles fired at Saudi Arabia that pointed to a "common origin" but could not conclude whether they came from an Iranian supplier.

Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.

But despite the coalition's superior firepower, the rebels still control the capital and much of the north.

More than 8,750 people have been killed since the coalition's intervention in Yemen, according to the World Health Organization.
