DUBAI (Reuters) - The military of Yemen's Houthi group said on Monday it attacked and hit a large oil facility in an industrial zone in the southern Saudi city of Jizan as part of an operation launching drones and missiles into Saudi Arabia overnight.

A Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis in Yemen said early on Monday it intercepted and destroyed four missiles and six explosive drones launched overnight by Houthi forces towards Saudi Arabia, but there was no confirmation of where or whether anything was hit.
