Saudi-led coalition intercepts 2 ballistic missiles fired by Yemen's Houthis

He revealed that he will present a new peace plan within two months.

Griffiths cited the increased missile launches, intensified military operations in northwest Saada governorate, ongoing air strikes and movements of forces in the Hodeidah region as worrisome developments.

Al-Maliki repeated previous statements accusing Iran of providing missile components to the Houthis.

A ballistic missile, allegedly shot by Houthi rebels from Yemen towards Saudi Arabia, was shot down Monday night by the country's border forces, Arab media said.

Earlier on Monday, the Saudi-led coalition warned the Houthi rebels of a "painful" response if they mounted new attacks on Saudi Arabia, using what it said were Iran-supplied drones.

Al Jazeera's Mike Hanna, reporting from NY, said the crucial element in Griffiths' peace plan and for political dialogue to take place is an end to hostilities.

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has said that the success of any political solution in Yemen depends on the Houthi militias.

Recent deployments of drones and ballistic missiles by the Houthi movement in Yemen in strikes against a Saudi tanker, both inside worldwide waters and Saudi territory itself, reveal an enduring ability on the part of the Houthis to strike far beyond the limits of their own territory.

The war in Yemen has been described by the United Nations as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 75 percent of the population, or about 22 million people, in need of aid, while seven million are on the brink of starvation.

In retaliation, the Houthis have launched dozens of missiles at the kingdom.

Saudi-led coalition state they prevented about 119 ballistic missiles targeting Saudi Arabia from reaching their destination.
