RIYADH, June 8 (Xinhua) -- Saudi Arabian air force spotted on Friday two ballistic missiles, fired toward the border city Najran, failed to reach their targets, Saudi Press Agency reported.

One of the missiles fell on Yemeni land and the second one in a desert area, Turki Al Maliki, spokesperson of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen to fight the Houthi rebels, was quoted as saying in a statement.

No damages were reported, Maliki added.

Missile attacks on Saudi cities have been common in the last three years since the beginning of the Saudi-led war on the Houthi rebels in Yemen. But majority of those missiles were intercepted by Saudi air force.

Saudi Arabia has repeatedly accused Iran of standing behind the Houthi rebels by supplying them with weapons and missiles.
