Yemen's Houthi rebels have launched a missile over the border into Saudi Arabia in the latest violation of a shaky truce between the insurgents and the Yemeni government.

Saudi Arabia's military said in a statement that several missiles had hit the Jizan border region, the first such strike in over a month, without wounding anyone.
A truce between the warring parties that began April 10 has been deteriorating in recent days, with violations. The conflict in Yemen pits Shiite Houthi rebels and supporters of a former president against Yemen's internationally recognized government, supported by a Saudi-led, U.S.-backed coalition.
Friday. Al Arabiya news channel’s correspondent said Saudi Arabia's army thwarted an attack on positions in Jazan.
He added that skirmishes has erupted, and that Saudi forces repelled the attack by Houthi militias on Al Khubah and Tawal in Jazan.
Days ago, the Saudi Interior Ministry said that one Saudi soldier was killed and three others were wounded when a landmine exploded on the border with Yemen.
The blast hit a border patrol in the southwestern province of Jazan, the ministry said in a statement.
