The Saudi-led coalition intercepted a ballistic missile fired from and then destroyed its launcher vehicle in Yemen, the Saudi news agency reported on Sunday.
The Saba news agency run by the Houthi group in Yemen's capital Sanaa said the Qahir 1 missile targeted a camp of the Saudi National Guard on the border between the two countries.
The missile hit the target destroying vehicles and munitions, Saba said.
The attack was the latest since the Houthi group escalated its responses against the coalition which has been bombing Yemen since March.
The coalition said it shot down all previous missiles fired against Saudi border towns.
The attack coincided with raging battles between the pro-government and Houthi forces in Taiz, Marib, Jawf and Sanaa.
In Taiz, locals said the Houthis have fired a lot rockets on many parts with some hitting populated areas killing and injuring civilians.
The coalition struck Houthi positions in Taiz today, they added.
In the past few days, it intensified airstrikes in parts of the city on the border with southern provinces killing and injuring tens of Houthis and civilians and destroying many equipment, sources in Haifan said.
The escalation by all sides come within persistent violations of a fragile ceasefire.
