Yemen's Houthi movement has fired ballistic missiles at what it called "economic and vital targets" in the southern Saudi province of Jizan, where Saudi authorities said a man was killed by debris from the projectiles.

Saudi Arabia's official Al-Ekhbariya television said in a statement that two high-ranking insurgents were among those killed in the airstrike, Arab News reported.

While the coalition said the attack claimed no casualties, Jizan's civil defence spokesman Colonel Yahya Abdullah al-Qahtani told Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya television that a Saudi Arabian citizen had been killed by falling shrapnel.

On Saturday, Houthis staged a large-scale funeral for the two commanders in Sanaa, in a display of military strength.

In September 2014, the Houthis took control of Sanaa and proceeded to push southwards towards the country's second-biggest city, Aden.

The Saudi-led coalition imposed a total blockade on Yemen's ports in November in retaliation for cross-border Houthi missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, according to the reports.

The forces intercepted on Friday a ballistic missile shot towards another border city Najran.
