A Saudi-led coalition air strike overnight killed dozens of Yemeni rebels including two commanders, state media said Saturday.

Houthi leader Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi held the US and Saudi Arabia responsible for Samad's killing, saying, "This crime won't go unanswered".

Saudi air defense forces intercepted the missile fired Houthi rebels on the southern Jazan province on Friday.

Al-Arabiya said the strike hit a building belonging to Yemen's Interior Ministry.

The Houthis have confirmed that an overnight attack took place but gave no details on casualties.

The rebels, who hail from northern Yemen, control Sanaa and much of the country's north - which borders Saudi Arabia - and the key Hodeida port on the Red Sea coast.

The announcement was made short after the Saudi military released a statement about the interception of four ballistic missiles that all were shot at the same time on Saturday morning, targeting Jazan.

A spokesman for the civil defense authority said a Saudi citizen died of shrapnel while two vehicles and three houses sustained damage from the attack.

There was no confirmation from the Saudi-led coalition fighting Houthi rebels.
