Saudi Arabia intercepts missile fired towards Jizan

Saudi Arabia intercepts missile fired towards Jizan

Saudi state media said air defence forces had intercepted a missile over the capital.

Saudi Arabia blames Iran for supplying projectiles for rebel missile attacks, a charge Teheran rejects.

Saudi Arabia intercepted a ballistic missile launched by Yemen's Houthis toward the southern city of Jizan, Saudi-owned broadcaster Al Arabiya TV said on Wednesday.

Witnesses in Riyadh report hearing two or three loud blasts, according to Reuters and AFP.




Hours earlier, the Houthis said that they had launched drone air strikes on a facility run by oil giant Saudi Aramco in Najran and on a civil airport in Abha city in the Saudi border province of Asir.

Colonel Turki al-Maliki, the spokesman for the Arab Coalition Forces fighting in Yemen, said that at 7:40 am local time air defense systems detected an object and dealt with it accordingly. "This hearing will allow members to examine United States policy toward the Middle East as we grapple with these conflicts and approach a key deadline for the Iran nuclear agreement", he said.

Al Masirah TV also reported the group targeted an Aramco distribution facility in Jizan, in Saudi Arabia.

"The air force announced the execution of air strikes with the Qasef-1 aircraft on Aramco in Jizan (province)", the channel said on its Twitter account, referring to a drone the Houthis unveiled past year. The group unveiled the Qasef-1 drone past year.
