The Houthi rebels said earlier that they had launched a missile at the airport in the Saudi mountain resort city.

Yemen's Houthi movement carried out an attack on Abha Airport in Saudi Arabia with a cruise missile, the group's Almasirah TV reported early on Wednesday. He said at least one Indian citizen was among three women wounded along with two Saudi children.

Colonel Turki al-Maliki, a spokesperson for the coalition, said: "At 02:21 this morning, a hostile rocket landed at the arrival lounge at Abha International Airport, which has thousands of civilian passengers daily from different nationalities".

The colonel said eight cases had been transferred to hospital to receive treatment for moderate injuries.

This constitutes a clear recognition and full responsibility for targeting civilians and civilian objects that are subject to special protection under global humanitarian law.

This aggression to the airport, which is approximately 125 miles north of the border with Yemen and serves domestic and regional routes, comes just days after Saudi Arabia said it intercepted multiple drones fired by the group targeting Jizan Airport - a small airport for short haul global arrivals and departures to near countries such as Emirates and Egypt.

Facebook's new cryptocurrency may launch this month, a report says
And the main focus for Facebook would be fund transfer via remittance which is to send money home to family members. To make the currency viable, Facebook has been working with governments to get approval for the token's use.

Malki said military and security forces were working to determine the type of projectile used in the terrorist attack.

Last month, the Saudi air force shot down a bomb-laden drone deployed by Houthi rebels that targeted Jizan airport, close to the southern border with Yemen, the coalition said.

Malki described the incident as a terrorist attack on a civilian target that could be considered a war crime.

Two oil pumping stations in Saudi Arabia were targeted by Houthi drones in May causing minor supply disruptions highlighting an apparent significant leap in the drone capabilities of the Houthis.

Mr Trump has been under pressure over relations with Saudi Arabia since the kingdom was accused of murdering dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi a year ago.
