    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia says its air force has intercepted two ballistic missiles fired from Yemen into the kingdom.

    A Saudi military statement says the missiles were fired on Wednesday morning toward the cities of Abha and Khamis Mushait, both of which are close to the kingdom's southern border with Yemen. It says the missiles caused no damage.

    Yemen's Shiite rebels known as Houthis are known to have a supply of Soviet-era Scud missiles, seized from the country's military stockpiles.

    A Saudi-led coalition has been battling the rebels and their allies since March 2015 in support of Yemen's internationally recognized government.
