The Yemeni army and their allies have fired a ballistic missile at a Saudi military base in a “simple response” to Saudi airstrikes that continue despite a ceasefire.

Yemen’s army spokesman Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman told the official Saba Net agency on Monday that the missile targeted a military base in the southwestern Saudi city of Khamis Mushait.

Saudi Arabia claimed it intercepted the missile before it could cause any damage.

The attack came after Saudi warplanes targeted al-Amaleqa camp in the Harf Sufyan district of Amran Province on Monday, killing 13 people, including five paramedics, and injuring at least 15 others.
