Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said on Tuesday Iran supplying militants in Yemen with rockets is considered "direct military aggression", the official state news agency SPA reported.

(reuters) -- Iran's supply of rockets to [Ansarullah] could "constitute an act of war against the Kingdom," SPA quoted the crown prince as saying in a telephone call with the British foreign minister.

Saudi air defence forces intercepted a ballistic missile fired towards Riyadh by Yemen's Iran-backed [Ansarullah] on Saturday.

Iran rejected the allegation by Saudi and described it as “destructive, irresponsible, provocative and baseless” accusations.
