He said many people in Yemen are now completely reliant on humanitarian aid to survive. For this to happen, the parties to the conflict must cease hostilities and engage meaningfully with the United Nations to achieve a lasting political settlement.

The Houthi rebels, who are believed to be backed by Iran, stormed Yemen's capital Sanaa in September 2014.

Saudi air defences intercepted the ballistic missile over Najran, according to the kingdom's state-owned Al Ekhbariya news channel.

The Saudi-led coalition - which also includes UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait - has been also imposing a blockade on the impoverished country's ports and airports as a part of the aggression.

Saudi Arabia is the only country operating Tornadoes in the region, according to Al Masdar News. The airstrikes have killed thousands of civilians and wiped out entire neighborhoods, including hospitals.

Saudi Arabia, which has been targeted by multiple rocket attacks in recent weeks, has blamed its regional rival Iran for arming the Shiite Huthis in the Yemen War.

The almost three-year stalemated war in Yemen has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced 3 million, damaged critical infrastructure, fuelled a cholera outbreak and pushed the Arab world's poorest country to the brink of starvation.

The International Red Cross said there are one million suspected cases of cholera in Yemen, and more than 80 percent of Yemenis lack food, fuel, clean water and access to health care.
