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

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

The missile was destroyed near Riyadh's King Khaled worldwide airport and was said to be of "limited size".

"We previously warned that capitals of countries attacking Yemen will not be safe from our ballistic missiles", Houthi spokesman Mohammed AbdulSalam said.

According to videos published on social media, smoke could be seen rising near Riyadh's King Khalid International Airport.

Saudi Arabia's Civil Aviation Authority confirmed on Twitter that the missile had been brought down over the airport.

The missile was sacked across Saudi Arabia's southern border by Yemen's Houthi rebels, who are at war with the kingdom.

This is the first time that a Houthi missile has come so close to a heavily populated area, and it appears to be the farthest that such a missile has reached inside Saudi Arabia.

Indigenous Australians have also complained about visitors urinating on the rock, potentially contaminating water sources. Let's come together; let's close it together", he said. 'We are not stopping tourism, just this activity, ' he said.

The missile was sacked at 8:07 p.m. local time (1:07 p.m. ET) and targeted civilian areas in Riyadh, the coalition said.

Saudi military forces have intercepted missiles fired from Yemen several times in the past. "Today's missile attack comes in response to Saudi killing innocent Yemeni civilians".

A Saudi-led coalition became involved in 2015 to help prop up Hadi's government after Shiite Huthis seized the capital Sanaa.

The explosion occurred in one of the terminals of the global airport king Khalid, 35 km from Riyadh.

"The missile was of limited size (and) no injuries or damage" were reported, the state news channel said. Saudi cities will be a continuous target.
