According to media reports, the missile was fired early Saturday morning at the Saudi regime's largest air force base located in the city of Khamees al-Mushait in the kingdom's Southwest.
Saudi Arabia claimed that it had intercepted the Scud by two Patriot missiles. This is while the airport terminals of Jizan and Abha were evacuated and flights cancelled following the attack.
The attack came after Saudi warplanes pounded the areas of Bani Sayah and Sahar in Sa'ada province and claimed the lives of more than 70 civilians.
Saudi fighter jets also bombarded areas in Yemen’s provinces of Shabwah and Hajjah on Friday. At least 11 people were killed and one person was wounded in the attacks on the Harad district of Hajjah province.
Saudi warplanes also pounded the Northern province of Sa’ada over 20 times in less than an hour, and killed three people and injured eight others in the residential areas in the Rahban district of the province.
In other air assaults on Friday, the Riyadh regime’s fighter jets targeted a military base in Yemen’s Lahij province and hit several areas in the capital Sana’a, the possible casualties of which have not yet been reported.
Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen in the last 73 days to bring its ally, fugitive president Mansour Hadi, back to power.
The airstrikes have so far claimed the lives of more than 4,310 civilians, mostly women and children.
According to a recent report by Freedom House Foundation, most of the victims of the deadly Al Saud campaign are civilians, including a large number of women and children.
