An Arab coalition intercepted two missiles fired by Yemen's Houthi group at targets in Saudi Arabia and Yemen's Marib province on Sunday, Saudi Arabian official media reported.

Warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition later attacked the two military bases from which the missiles were fired, the Saudi Press Agency reported late on Sunday.

A base in the capital Sanaa fired one missile towards Marib, and a base in northern Saada province launched a missile towards the Saudi city of Taif, the site of a Saudi air force base.
