According to the reports, the attack was conducted using a Yemeni-made, long-range ballistic missile called the "Burqan 2H".
Despite thousands of airstrikes and a blockade of Yemen from the sea and air, the Saudi-led coalition has failed to push the Houthis out, although it does claim to have reduced the territory the rebels control. Saudi Arabia's Civil Aviation Authority said the missile did not cause any damage to the King Khalid International Airport and that flights were not disrupted.
Government forces repelled several attacks by Houthi rebels and allied forces of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh in the province over the past 24 hours, military spokesman Col. Abdul-Basit al-Bahr told Anadolu Agency.
"This hostile and random act by the Houthis proves that one of the terrorism-supporting countries in the region supports the Houthis", the statement said.
A Saudi military spokesman condemned the attack in a statement, saying the missile was sacked "indiscriminately" toward a populated civilian area.
