SANAA, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- Yemen's Houthi rebels said that a woman was killed on Friday in a Saudi-led coalition projectile attack on Yemeni border province of Saada, the rebel-controlled Saba news agency reported.

The afternoon attack targeting Razih district also led to the injury of two other women, Saba said.

There was no comment yet from the coalition side on the rebels' claim.

The Iran-allied Yemeni Houthi rebels and the Saudi-led coalition forces supporting the Yemeni internationally recognized government regularly exchange missile and projectile attacks over the Yemeni-Saudi border.

On Tuesday, the rebels said that a coalition projectile attack on Talan Haydan village in Saada killed three people and wounded two children.

Saada is the key stronghold of the Houthis.

Saudi Arabia is leading an Arab military coalition that intervened in Yemen in March 2015 to support the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi after the Houthi rebels forced him into exile.

Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of aggravating instability in Yemen by supplying Houthi rebels with weapons, which has been repeatedly denied by both Houthis and Iran.
