Saudi Arabia Thursday intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile fired from war-torn Yemen, state media reported, the second such attack this month claimed by Iran-backed Houthi rebels.The missile targeted the southern Saudi city of Khamis Mushait, with authorities reporting no casualties, just hours after the rebels threatened to retaliate over a crippling blockade on Yemen.A Saudi-led coalition against the rebels imposed the blockade, which the U.N. warns is deepening Yemen's humanitarian crisis, in response to a Houthi missile that was intercepted near Riyadh airport on Nov. 4 .Hours earlier rebel chief Abdulmalik al-Houthi threatened to retaliate if the blockade was prolonged.The conflict has claimed more than 8,600 lives since the Saudi-led coalition joined the government's war against the rebel alliance.
