Saudi Arabia has intercepted two missiles launched by Yemen’s Houthi militia over Riyadh.
At least six loud blasts were heard and bright flashes were seen in the sky over the Saudi capital while shrapnel was seen in the city’s diplomatic quarter where most embassies are located and many foreigners live.
An AFP journalist heard at least four loud explosions in the Saudi capital, which has been targeted by Houthi missiles in the past.
Col. Al-Malki said that the two missiles were launched deliberately to target densely populated areas.
The spokesman added that this hostile act carried out by the Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist militias proves that the Iranian regime continues to be involved in supporting the Houthi armed militias with qualitative capabilities in clear and explicit defiance of UN resolutions 2216 and 2231 in order to threaten the security of Saudi Arabia as well as regional and international security.
