Saudi Arabia Intercepts Missile Launched from Yemen

Saudi Arabia’s air defense forces have intercepted a missile north-east of the capital, al-Arabiya and the BBC reports.

The missile was launched by Houthi rebels in Yemen and was aimed at King Khalid International Airport, Houthi TV channel Al-Masirah said.

The missile did not cause any damage and was “of limited size,” reported Al-Ekhbariya.

Saudi Arabia has since 2015 been involved in a devastating war with Yemen’s Houthi rebels. On several occasions missiles have been launched from the northern Yemen into Saudi Arabia by Houthi militants.
