Yemen cross-border shelling kills Saudi woman
Cross-border shelling from Yemen killed a Saudi woman on Sunday and wounded two other citizens, the kingdom’s civil defence agency said. The shelling at 2:00am local time in the southern Jazan region killed a woman and wounded a man and his son, according to the agency’s spokesman Major Yehia al-Qahtani.
Saudi Arabia has lead a military coalition battling Iran-backed rebels in Yemen since March 2015 in support of Sanaa’s internationally recognised government of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi.
Attacks from Yemen on Saudi border areas have intensified since the suspension in early August of UN-brokered peace talks.
