Houthis Claim Ballistic Missile Hit Riyadh. Saudi Arabia Says It’s Intercepted


On November 5, the Yemeni Houthi-Saleh alliance launched a ballistic missile at the Saudi capital, Riyadh. Pro-Houthi sources say that the missile hit the King Khalid International Airport. There also were reports about a loud explosion in the airport.

However, pro-Saudi sources say that the missile was intercepted by the US-made Patriot missile defense system northeast of the capital. According to a video, Saudi forces used at least 4 Patriot missiles to down the Yemeni missile.

The Houthi-Saleh alliance actively uses ballistic missiles against targets in Saudi Arabia and Saudi-led coalition forces in Yemen. These missile attacks pose a significant threat to Saudi Arabia.

These developments took place while the Saudi military campaign has failed in Yemen. Despite the Saudi-led intervention in 2015, the Houthi-Saleh alliance still controls the country’s capital and a large part of Yemen.
