In a Thursday statement, the coalition said rockets were fired by the Houthi group at Jazan and Najran cities in Saudi Arabia. The Houthis said a coalition air strike killed three civilians in northern Saada province, adding that they had launched attacks on Saudi military camps across the border over the past two days.

A 72-hour ceasefire, brokered by the UN, began on Wednesday.
