A Saudi border guard was killed while another soldier was wounded by a rocket attack from Yemen, AFP reports.
Faisal Mohammed Belqasem Maqaadi was hit in the southern Saudi city of Jazan, the country’s interior ministry said.
Riyadh launched a wide-scale military operation against Iran-backed Houthi rebels in March with the border death toll mounting to at last 44 people.
