Saudi state news agency said the missile was intercepted and destroyed, causing no casualties.

The plane "had a technical failure at 15:40 (1840 GMT) and crashed... in an area of operations" in Yemen, Turki al- Maliki, the spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, told AFP.

On Dec. 19, 2017, the Houthi movement fired a ballistic missile toward the royal palace in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

"In a blatant violation of global law, the Iranian-Houthi militia on Saturday attempted an attack by three remote-controlled drone boats, targeting a Saudi oil tanker and threatening to disrupt navigation in Bab El-Mandeb strait", Colonel Turki Al-Maliki.

A provincial health official says an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition has struck a market in northern Yemen, killing 11 people, including an 11-year-old boy.

Last week, the Saudi-led coalition announced it had intercepted a missile also fired at Najran from inside Yemeni territory. He pointed out that it is necessary and the United Nations must take the initiative to receive the port of Hodeidah from the Houthi armed group to help the Yemeni people and to maintain regional and global security and stability, pointing out that the port of Hodeidah has become the starting point for acts of terrorism that threaten the navigation movement.

The report presented to the UN Security Council on 9 January said: 'The panel has identified missile remnants, related military equipment and military unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that are of Iranian origin and were introduced into Yemen after the imposition of the targeted arms embargo'.

Iran-backed Huthi rebels, who are locked in a war with Yemen's Saudi-backed government, said they shot down the plane over Saada, their northern Yemeni stronghold, according to their Al-Masirah television channel.
