Saudi-led coalition intercepts ballistic missile attack towards Riyadh: media

The Saudi-led coalition involved in a war in Yemen said on Saturday they intercepted a ballistic missile attack launched by Houthi militias toward Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh, Al Arabiya TV reported.

The attack was the second thwarted attempts reported on Saturday. The coalition destroyed a bomb-laden drone launched towards border city Khamis Mushait in Saudi Arabia.

The coalition destroyed on Friday a missile launched from Sa’dah governorate in Yemen towards the kingdom’s southern region. On the same day, two Houthi drone attacks were foiled.

The coalition will complete in March its sixth year of war in Yemen against the Houthi militia in support of the government of the Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
