Saudi Arabia is sending a “strike force” of tanks to its border with Yemen, Saudi-owned media has reported.
Al Arabiya Hadath TV broadcast pictures of a column of tanks loaded onto military trucks and described it as “the arrival of reinforcements from the strike force to the border”.
The fighting between Yemen’s Shia rebels and Saudi forces in border areas came a day before a humanitarian ceasefire was due to take effect.
Also on Monday, a Moroccan F-16 fighter jet taking part in the Saudi-led coalition against the Shia rebels, known as Houthis, has gone missing, Morocco said.
The Houthis said they fired Katyusha rockets and mortars on the Saudi cities of Jizan and Najran, after the Saudis hit Saada and Hajjah provinces with more than 150 rockets.
Saudi planes also struck positions of the Houthi group in the central city of Taiz and in the oil-producing Marib province, east of the Yemeni capital Sanaa.
