Civil Defense Department says Yemeni rebels were shelling the Gulf kingdom’s southern border region.

A Pakistani national was killed on 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 airstrikes 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.
