 RIYADH, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- Saudi forces intercepted two missiles from Yemen on Wednesday, local media reported.

 
The incident occurred at 6:30 a.m. local time (0330 GMT), with no reported casualties or damage, Al Akhbariya news channel said.
 
The missiles were directed at the border cities of Abha and Khamis Mushait in southwest Saudi Arabia, the news channel reported.
 
Airstrikes were subsequently conducted against the suspected missile-launch locations within Yemen, the report said without elaboration.
 
A Saudi-led coalition has been engaged in a war in Yemen against Houthi rebels for over a year.
 
The coalition's airstrikes have intensified since United Nations-sponsored talks in Kuwait between Houthi rebels and the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi fell through on Saturday.
