Riyadh: A Saudi national was killed in the province of Jizan in a border shelling from the Yemeni territories.
Civil Defence announced on Twitter that a military projectile launched from neighboring Yemen fell on the citizen’s house which caused his death, reported local Arabic daily Al-Riyadh.
Meanwhile, Najran city, southwestern the Kingdom and also near the border with Yemen, has recently suffered human casualties and property damages due to escalation rocket attacks from Yemeni territories.
As of January 2016, around 90 civilians and soldiers died from shelling and skirmishes in Saudi border regions since March when a Saudi-led military coalition began air and ground action in Yemen.
They are supporting local forces against the rebels and their allies, who seized territory from the internationally-recognised government.
