Riyadh-led airstrikes came after Yemen's Houthis launched a projectile into the southern Saudi province of Jizan, killing two people late last week.

The Saudi Arabia-led military coalition fighting Yemen’s Houthi rebels said it launched renewed airstrikes in response to a projectile attack that killed two people near the southern Saudi Jizan province on Friday.

The coalition said it launched a “large-scale military operation” against the Houthis, including some 40 strikes against rebel targets in Yemen’s north, Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ekhbariya TV reported on Saturday.
