Saudi Arabia Intercepts Missile In The Skies Above Riyadh

Click to see full-size image

On January 23rd, a missile or a drone was reportedly intercepted in the skies above Riyadh, the Saudi-Arabian capital.

Some reports claim it was a ballistic missile.

Users on Twitter said that they had 3 massive explosions in the city.

According to the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, “an enemy air target towards Riyadh was intercepted and destroyed,” according to the state-run Al-Akhbariya channel, without giving further details.

The Houthis did not immediately acknowledge launching a missile or a drone toward Riyadh.

The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh issued a warning to Americans calling on them to “stay alert in case of additional future attacks.”

“I heard a loud sound and thought that something had fallen to the ground. The whole house shook for a while,” a Saudi woman living in the Sulaymaniyah neighborhood in central Riyadh told AFP.

The King Khalid International Airport website in Riyadh reported delays in the arrival of many flights, but it was not immediately clear if this was linked to the attempt to target the city.

On January 22nd, the Saud-led coalition announced that it had thwarted “two terrorist operations that the Houthi militia tried to carry out,” and stated that its forces destroyed a drone bomb launched by the Houthis towards the Kingdom, and a booby-trapped boat south of the Red Sea.

In November 2020, the rebels attacked a distribution station for petroleum products belonging to Aramco in the north of the city of Jeddah, in the west of the Kingdom, with a missile, which led to a fire in a fuel tank.

More than a year before this attack, Aramco facilities near Riyadh were subjected to unprecedented attacks.

What is new? Islamic Jihad & Hamas, Hezbollah, PMU and the Houthis all target civilians. Their Iranian masters are giving them rockets and money to continue their terrorism, so nothing is going to change till the Iranian regime is overthrown. I’d rather see the iranian do it themselves, but we all know that once there is a small uprising the regime is killing the people who do it. For how long can they keep killing the protesters? eventually even the USSR had to dissolve. That farbat guy keeps saying Israel is going to disappear in 2022, without realizing it’s his home country that is going to be changed by his own people. You know what they say, what goes around..comes around.

WANKER ALERT!

He is a silly boy.

No I am not Ashoky the bastardo, I actually got 128 in my IQ test. It’s not my fault you come from a family of inbreds.

Garga

I knew you are brighter than average Israeli, knew it!

Still you have to get in line. Mine was anything between 144 and 176 depending on the test and I still suck at so many things. They are not so reliable to boast about.

<>

I guess I might have an Iranian DNA too!? won’t surprise me ;)
Well done Garga, i think that is why both of us can have a civilized conversation, just look at Emad.

Ashok Varma

You are a desperate teenager. Lol

Frank

Frankly, he is not even entertaining wanker. Just same old childishness and idiotic attention seeking nonsense.

Potato Man

I don’t understand why you people reply to that goy-Wahhabi.
Ignore him or just block him, don’t feed the troll…goys-Wahhabis wants attention and do anything for attention and ofc after money.

Here is pic of that goy with Biden,

We Iranian are not interested in your hopes and policy. You even failed to change Syrian government nevertheless Iran. In November 2019 there were only 10.000 protesters, Iran has a population 83 Mil. people. USSR was not a country, it was an Union, called Soviet Union. Unions will disappear just like US (United States). Iran is a country not an Union idiot Hasbara, at the end you can dream for a regime change

<>

I don’t need to dream Emad, you’re getting there faster than you think. On the last time your regime killed 400 protesters, you’ve added 400 more families who now hate the mullahs even more. Keep it up, they are not scared of your Basij anymore.

Emad Irani

these families hated before the event nothing new, otherwise their dogs wouldn’t protest, you get this??

Beside that I said already Iran has 83 Mil. population :)

Basij is only a small force within Irans armed forces. There were no Basijis on the streets, only anti riot police. Keep dreaming dumb Hasbara

<>

I guess time will tell Emad, no need to get upset my friend eventually the people fight for freedom, and they will get it too :)

Emad Irani

like in 2009 failed coup? ;) You failed in Syria already.

Iran is even more free than your lovely Israel, because in our TV there are traitors who can criticize us and we welcome it :)

In 2011 you said Assad will go, now again the same bullshit haha

<>

Criticize the mullahs? lol. You can’t keep the people under a leash forever Emad, don’t forget it. BTW, it’s true for us and the Palestinians aswell, they need a state of their own so we can get rid of them.

Emad Irani

of course that is why we say you will not see the future idiot :)
Beside that there are even liberal “Mullahs” but you don’t get this, because you’re a dumb Hasbara with no knowledge about policy, military, geopolitics, religion and history. only trolling ppl on SF haha

<>

You don’t really know me, but let’s keep it like that :)
Keep killing more protesters, let me know how it works out for you in the end.

Emad Irani

empty words, empty “knowledge” fake like your country.

If you had something to say, you wouldn’t boast yourself with your weird flex 130 fake IQ test. Keep “predict” the future dear wizard like you did with Syria, Iran, etc

<>

What for Emad? you’re not worth the discussion with me. Anything I will write you would close your ears (or eyes in this case) and ignore the facts. So keep believing your regime is sitting on a solid groud, and the reality will prove who is right.

Emad Irani

my eyes and ears are open but there are no facts, only bullshit. Iran is not only on a solid ground, it also strengthen its pillars. I can say that as an engineer.

I already said, you are far away from reality, that is why you have paranoia 24 hours a day. All your predictions turned out to be wrong at least

<>

You can call me a paranoid, I’d rather call myself a realist. Like for example, now that Trump is gone, do you think Biden will suddenly lift up the sanctions and you will get lovey-dubby with the U.S? the train has left the station long time ago. Iran will remain a pariah state, as long as it sponsors terrorism across the ME, and the mullahs will always worry when the next rebelion starts inside Iran. You wanted facts no? okay.

Your economy is ruined, Lebanese, Iraqis and Syrians protest against your proxy forces, and the Sunnis have got closer to Israel thanks to you. Also, we have general elections here more 60 days, and Bibi doesn’t have a coalition so it means there is a real chance now he gets replaced. A new Israeli PM won’t accept all of the bullshit Bibi has said and done, and will start dealing with your proxies using true force, while at the same time negotiate with the secular PLO to end the conflict.

When we solve our conflict with the Palestinians, the Arabs will see who is the real problem in the ME.

Emad Irani

Dude, I said already you’re dumb. We don’t care about persons, we don’t care about Trump or Biden, we don’t care about bibi or his successor. We said already we are against US and Israhell in general because these are systems, not countries or persons. This person show replacing another person is just show off nothing more. We have directly a problem with the deep state Hasbara. We have plan for everyone and every person who get elected. Iran not only will expand his influency, it is also stepping up its missile arsenal for more ICBMs, better, bigger and faster.

There is no next rebellion because 10k persons are not 83 Mil. people idiot. And I am seeing these people everyday ;) Beside that you are saying for 43 years that we are collapsing like you said about Assad in 2011 but full bullshit. These “sunnis” are some Sheikhs from around Persian Gulf who had connection to Israel before Trumps show. It is not new and we knew it for decades. I don’t any protest in syria lebanon iraq or you mean the same thing like Iran with only 10k people hahaha our “proxies” you couldn’ t bet them in 33 days war. You cannot finish a ideological group. Thats it. Keep dreaming because this region belongs to other people, not you :)

<>

I suppose you already know I am of Iraqi origin, so this region belongs to us the same as it belong to you. I don’t need to explain to you some military facts, but I’ll do so anyway. And please, don’t call me Hasbara I find it offensive. Call me an officer in the IDF, that’s more like it. Now, to facts.

You claim we couldn’t beat Hezbollah in 33 days, and that’s true. 33 days are not long enough to finish off an organization with many bunkers and rockets stored all over Lebanon. When the ceasefire agreement was signed, we were one step closer from crossing the Litani river. Do you know geography? if you do, check what happens if the IDF cross it. Regarding their rockets, most of their long ranged ones were destroyed in the first days of the war and they were only able to shoot short ranged ones till Haifa. Compare the damage done to us and Lebanon and you will understand why Nasrallah doesn’t dare to make any move again. So to claim we are scared and we can’t beat them is wrong, it’s only a question of how much firepower we decide to use and as a result how many Lebanese are going to die.
30K IDF troops waited to join the war, but PM olmert didn’t give them the greenlight and it was a mistake. Your Nasrallah needs to thank him, because if they had entered they would have wiped out everything on the way. We are ready for another ground war, but Hezbollah knows what it means for them and Lebanon this time.

You think you can keep playing your dirty game of using proxies, it’s all good till the entire ME (including Egypt which hates you) join forces with Israel and decide to deal with you and then, you won’t like it. You can’t shoot ballistic missile on every Arab country, it’s a war you would lose but by all means, keep going that way.

Emad Irani

Youre an officer? Haha a shit officer who doesn’t know the basics of military and
missiles or ADS. Nice try Hasbara dog.

You know why I said 33 days? Because it was your limit, during the 33 days war Israhell begged US for help and intel information. Israhell is not able to fight a war
for more than one month. Every war limit is just one month. And that was
Hezbollah in 2006 not today. Today Hezbollah has many many unknown weapons that can make hell for IDF troops. The know every corner of Lebanon, this will be a
nightmare for Israel. Plus all the experience from Syria. Hezbollah was busy to
fight your regime change plan in Syria which failed of course. It was a big
lost for you and US, you invested too much in Syria but nothing gained.

33K troops are jokes, even Iraqi PMU has 150.000 soldiers and you know what? The latest missile attack on Riad, Iraqi group took responsibility means they also have precision guided missiles and drones mostly suicide drones. These sheikh arab countries around Persian Gulf are lost, we all know these are fake countries like yourself and Israhell/US are using them like prostitutes. They can’t even fight Yemen with all the support, money, intelligence, weapons from US Israhell … keep that in your mind

At least Egypt is a joke too, they never won a war, even now they are struggling with Libya and Turkey. Don’t tell me jokes again.

In case of your Iraqi roots: It doesn’t matter. We are against everyone who supports the Zio imperialist. When I say everyone it means also if a “Mullah” talks bullshit we will send him to prison. And everyone who fights against Zio Imperialists is welcomed by us, could be Jew, Christian or even someone without religion no matter. IRGC commanders visited Jews and Christians tombs of people who were killed during the war. Our fight against you is deeply rooted. This is why I
say, Iran is not only on a solid ground, it also strengthened its pillars already, US know this, you will too soon

Ashok Varma

Just enjoy his teenage rants. He is not even in high school yet. Anyone who boasts of IQ is a kid. Smart people don’t brag.

Frank

Only insecure idiots post brags about IQ. What kind of a self respecting adult would make these moronic claims on an internet sites lol. Teenage brag fest.

Garga

They are not IDF you know?
Hezbollah, PMU, Ansarallah and “their Iranian masters” have something called “honour” which prevents them from attacking their enemy’s civilian population.
No amount of propaganda changes this fact.

I’d say you and farbat solve this feud between you by fists. Who’s with me?

<>

Well SF also blamed us for killing civilians and guess what Garga? it was the Syrian themselves who did it.

Garga

Don’t rely on information from Freeman, he lies.
The remnants of the glide bomb your regime used was found there, isn’t it enough evidence?

Don’t change the subject, we want to see a fist fight, right here right now!

<>

Hmm I think it would ba bit problematic, but a zoom fight can solve it!

Galvo

The real master of killing civilians and protesters (Palestinians) is your beloved apharteid state of Israel

It is not a first time Wahhabi terrorists try to lie…and uhmmm one missile hmmmm.
1. It might be a false flag by Wahhabi Zion block, to stop Biden to remove Yemen’s Ansarullah from “terrorists list”.
2. They got one missile and cutting the head of any-one dare to say otherwise.

Rhodium 10

Saudi population are not allowed to post video where a missile have hit Saudi Assets

Garga

Did you hear this Farhan al Saud or something guy?

A complete change of rhetoric from “we crush resistance” to “we want peace in Yemen but Houthis don’t let us”!!
