Four shells from Yemen landed in a town in the western Saudi border province of Jazan late Saturday without causing any injuries or casualities, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

The shells, which landed in the town of Samtah, caused only light damages in some homes.

The correspondent said Saudi forces hitting back at the source of the shelling was heard.

So far this month, shelling coming from the Yemen side hit a school and a coffee shop, killing two civilians and injuring a child and a resident, authorities in Jazan said.

On Sunday, the fourth round of Yemen’s peace talks began in Kuwait, aimed at bringing the one-year conflict to an end.
