Yemen shelling kills Pakistani in southern Saudi Arabia

RIYADH: A Pakistani national was killed Sunday in Saudi Arabia when Yemeni rebels shelled the kingdom’s southern border region, the civil defense department said.
A rocket hit Arda, which is part of the southwestern region of Jazan, Civil Defense spokesman Yahya Al-Qahtani said in a report by the official Saudi Press Agency.
“As result, a Pakistani national was killed,” he said without naming the victim.
At least 115 civilians and soldiers have been killed in southern Saudi Arabia since a Saudi-led coalition launched air strikes in Yemen against Houthi rebels in March 2015 to support Yemen’s government.
Most of the casualties were Saudi who were killed in cross-border shelling or skirmishes.
