Missiles fired at Saudi Arabia by Houthi rebels that left one person dead in the capital were supplied by Iran, the Saudi led-coalition supporting Yemen's government said. One missile was sacked towards Khamis Mushait in the province of Asir, another towards Najran and the other two at Jizan.

In the "unequal war" on Yemen, Saudis and their allies have been only faced with the Yemeni people's resistance and experienced a "disgraceful defeat", Qassemi said, emphasizing that Saudi Arabia was in "no position and condition" to realize its "illusions and fantasies".

"These hostile acts continue to pose a direct threat to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and threaten regional, as well as worldwide, security", the statement said. Houthi rebels said they had been aiming at a number of locations, including Riyadh's global airport. "The members of the Security Council called upon all parties to comply with worldwide humanitarian law", it said.

Iran has repeatedly denied arming the Huthis in Yemen, despite claims by the United States and Saudi Arabia that the evidence of an arms connection is irrefutable.

The fatal missile attack is raising fears that the row between the 2 regional powerhouses could escalate.

The United States also condemned attack in a statement by the State Department. The rebel leader also cited the recent vote in the US Senate, when lawmakers rejected a bipartisan effort to end US involvement in the war. Seven ballistic missiles were fired by Houthi militia from Yemen on Sunday night, killing an expatriate and wounding two others.

Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed al-Jubeir of Saudi Arabia told CNN, "Operatives from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Hezbollah helped put it back together again and launch it". Those responsible must cease these risky and provocative actions. The report by Conflict Armament Research was dismissed by the Iranian mission to the United Nations.

Between November and December of past year, the Saudis intercepted at least two missiles targeting its capital.

Riyadh has been the target of similar attacks, but this is the first one that has resulted in a fatality.

'The firing of multiple ballistic missiles towards cities is a serious development'. One resident uploaded a video that showed missile debris landing on the highway.

The Houthi militants of Yemen, backed by Iran, have fired several missiles into Saudi Arabia and the latter has successfully prevented from causing damages. Iranian-Houthi rockets targeted civilian areas.

"The United States strongly condemns the risky Houthi missile attacks aimed at several cities in Saudi Arabia Sunday night", Nauert said. A November 4 launch previously targeted King Khalid International Airport, showing the missiles had a range of over 1,000 kilometers (620 miles).

The Houthis took over the Yemeni capital in 2014. However, Sanaa remains under rebel control.

The Huthis plan a huge rally in Sanaa yesterday to mark the anniversary. Rebel authorities ordered all schools and government offices shut for the anniversary.
