A Saudi citizen and a Yemeni resident were killed as a result of a Houthi projectile that hit the southern Saudi city of Jizan on Friday, Saudi state media reported citing a coalition statement.

The Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iran-aligned Houthis in Yemen carried out an attack later on Friday to address what it called "the attack's origins", and said it will follow that with a wider attack over Houthi military targets.

Another Houthi projectile hit the Saudi city of Najran, causing material damage.

Houthi's Friday's cross-border attacks come after the coalition struck a Houthi military camp in the centre of the Yemeni capital Sanaa early on Friday.

Residents told Reuters that explosions had rocked Sanaa as a result of the coalition strikes.

The coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015 after the Houthis ousted the internationally recognised government from Sanaa.
