Ammunition fired by Houthi rebels injured five civilians in southern Saudi Arabia, according to report by media.

According to Saudi’s civil defence, the projectile slammed into a public road in the southern province of Jizan on Monday, wounding three Saudis and two Yemenis.

In addition to the casualties, two homes, a grocery store and three vehicles were also damaged.

The US embassy in Riyadh condemned the cross-border fire, and called on the Houthis to "stop attacking innocent civilians and to engage in the diplomatic process to end this conflict".

The Houthi rebels are yet to claim responsibility for the attack. In recent weeks, they have increased their attack on the kingdom as they try to take over the Marib.

On Saturday, the Saudi-led coalition thwarted a missile attack by the rebels.

Separately, the coalition said it intercepted six Huthi drones targeting the kingdom on Saturday, including the southern cities of Khamis Mushait and Jizan.
