The Yemeni rebels' had targeted a Patriot air defence system in the airport of the Saudi city of Najran near the Yemeni border on May 23, Al Masirah TV reported.
Iran is likely to use the Houthis to give Saudi Arabia and by extension the US, a bloody nose - ruining any chance for peace in the process.
Attacks on Saudi oil facilities do not necessarily represent a ‘game changer’ in the Yemen conflict but add to ongoing tensions between Riyadh and Iran.
The peace deal, which is being implemented after a five-month lull, is seen by some as a significant move towards peace and window-dressing by others.
Mohammed Ali al Houthi, the head of the rebels' Supreme Revolutionary Committee, says the pullout started on Saturday at 0700 GMT. But the Yemen government says the rebels are faking withdrawal.
The state-run news agency in Aden, aligned with the government-in-exile which is backed by the Saudi-led coalition, said Iran-linked rebels were using a nearby building as a storehouse for weapons.
The US is supporting a joint Saudi-UAE effort to stamp out democratic movements in the region.
As the southern independence dream and the UAE’s ambitious designs in Yemen continue to be ignored, the peace process which the Stockholm Agreement aims to constitute is unlikely.
Yemen's government and Houthi rebels agree on first phase of pullback of forces from Hudaida port city, a deal UN describes as "important progress."
The pullback from Hudaida was initially agreed in December during talks in Sweden but deadlines for both sides to move their forces away from the ports and parts of the city were missed.
Negotiations in Jordan will attempt to verify names of about 15,000 prisoners to be exchanged by both sides, some of whom include Saudis and other nationals fighting on the Aden government's side.
Martin Griffiths, UN envoy for Yemen, says, "Such changes in timelines are expected, in light of the facts that the timelines were rather ambitious and we are dealing with a complex situation on the ground."
