Houthi rebels from Yemen carried out mortar attacks on the Saudi Arabian city of Najran near the countries’ shared border, witnesses revealed on Friday.
Yemen has been mired in turmoil in recent months, with Houthis taking over large parts of the country and forcing President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi to flee.
In late March, a coalition headed by Saudi Arabia started carrying out airstrikes against Houthi positions. The coalition announced an end to its operations the following month but the airstrikes continued.
A five-day humanitarian ceasefire between the warring sides, which will be subject to renewal, is expected to begin in Yemen on Tuesday night.
