Incoming Fire from Yemen Kills 3 People in Saudi Arabia

Incoming Fire from Yemen Kills 3 People in Saudi Arabia

Friday, 18 September 2015 01:19 PM EDT

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Authorities in Saudi Arabia say incoming fire from Yemen hit a residence for construction workers in the kingdom's south, killing at least three people and wounding 28.

A report Friday in the state-run Saudi Press Agency quoted a local civil defense official as saying the incoming fire landed in Jizan province. The report suggested the three killed were foreign workers, though it did not identify their nationalities. Of the 28 wounded, the report said four were Saudi citizens.

Southern Saudi Arabia has been targeted by Yemen's Shiite rebels known as Houthis since a kingdom-led coalition started targeting the insurgents with airstrikes beginning in March.

Saudi, Emirati and other allied troops backing exiled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi are pushing to take Yemen's rebel-held capital, Sanaa.
