A Yemeni rebel missile was intercepted over Saudi Arabia late Friday, a Saudi-led coalition said, as the death toll from a rebel attack on a Yemeni army camp rose to 32.
The rebels' Saba news agency said the missile was aimed at offices of Saudi oil giant Aramco in the town of Jizan.
The coalition, which has been fighting the rebels in support of government forces for the past two years, said the missile was intercepted without casualties or damage.
Marib province lies on the border with Saudi Arabia and most of it has been retaken by government forces.
Military sources said the rebels hit the Kofel camp in Sarwah district with a Katyusha-type multiple rocket launcher and hit a mosque crowded with soldiers for the main weekly prayers.
Despite the coalition's military intervention, the rebels still control Sanaa and much of the northern highlands and Red Sea coast.
