According to a statement posted on Houthi-controlled state Saba news agency, the missile hit the target accurately.

Houthis said the missile fire came in "retaliatory response to the Saudi-led continuing air strikes on Yemeni cities."

Khamis Mushait city locates in Asir region, adjacent to Yemen's northern border.

It was the latest in a series of ballistic missile attacks by Houthis, who dominate most part of northern Yemen, against Saudi border cities since March 2015.

Saba news agency reported dozens of air strikes over the past 24 hours by the Saudi-led warplanes against targets across northern Yemeni cities, including the capital Sanaa, northern provinces of Hajja and Saada and southwestern province of Taiz.

The Saudi war on Yemen, ground battles and airstrikes have already killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, half civilians, injured more than 35,000 others and displaced over 3 million, according to humanitarian agencies, ABNA reported.
