Yemen's Houthi fire missile at Saudi Arabia's Riyadh

Yemen army thwarts Houthi attacks in Taiz, kills 40

Media reported that the explosion occurred as a result of interception, defense of Saudi Arabia missiles.

The Saudi-led coalition accused a regional state of providing material support to the Houthi rebels, saying the firing of a ballistic missile at Riyadh "threatens the security of the Kingdom and regional and worldwide security", according to a statement carried by Saudi state-TV al-Ekbariya.

A TV channel linked to Houthi rebels in Yemen said the missile was launched at the airport.

Unconfirmed footage uploaded to Twitter appeared to show a volley of at least three missiles being fired from the ground at an undetermined location in Riyadh.

"The rocket landed on the airport campus and did not cause any significant damage". As reported by Al Jazeera, the incident occurred on Saturday, November 4th. The Houthis have been targeting various Saudi cities with missiles since the beginning of the war of the Saudi-led coalition against the Houthis in Yemen in 2015.

Riyadh is around 620 miles north of the border with Yemen.

"If the Iranians have supplied a long distance missile, which is the only explanation really, then the big question is how will the Saudis respond".

Impoverished Yemen has remained in a state of civil war since 2014, when Houthi rebels overran much of the country, including the capital Sanaa.

Despite thousands of airstrikes and a blockade of Yemen from the sea and air, the Saudi-led coalition has failed to push the Houthis out, although it does claim to have reduced the territory the rebels control.
