Yemen’s Houthi rebels fired a ballistic missile into a military site in southwestern Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
The Houthi-run Saba news agency, citing a military source, said the Qaher-M2 missile was fired at a Saudi command center in Jizan region near Yemeni border.
The source said the missile hit its target and caused heavy losses.
There was no comment from Saudi authorities on the claim.
Yemen fell into civil war in 2014 when Houthi rebels overran the capital Sanaa and much of the country, forcing the government to set up an interim capital in the coastal city of Aden.
In 2015, Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies launched a devastating air campaign aimed at rolling back Houthi military gains in Yemen.
According to UN figures, more than 10,000 people -- including numerous civilians -- have been killed to date as a result of the conflict.
