Saudi Forces Intercept Missiles Over Riyadh, Jazan: Sate Media

At least one ballistic missile and a rocket have been intercepted over the Saudi capital Riyadh and the southern city of Jazan, Saudi state media claimed.

According to, Al Arabiya TV, “two rockets” were intercepted late on March 28 citing its correspondent and sources. At the same time, state-run Al-Ekhbariya television reported that a “ballistic missile” has been intercepted and destroyed over Riyadh.

AFP says its reporters in Riyadh have heard three explosions.

The SPA later said “two civilians were slightly injured due to the falling of the intercepted missile’s debris as it exploded in mid-air over residential districts”.

No one has claimed responsibility for the missile or rocket attacks on Riyadh. Nonetheless, Saudi Arabia has been frequently targeted by Yemen’s Houthis (Ansar Allah).

It should be noted that the pro-Houthi media reproted that the air defense force of the Yemeni movement had launched missiles at Saudi warplanes over Yemen last night. Saudi warplanes may have been in Yemeni airspace to carry out strikes in response to the missile attack.

    Did they?

    FYI, the video came from Ekhbariyah channel, titling “the moment Patriot system destroyed ballistic missile over Riyadh”, which they removed after they noticed there’s no such thing in video.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The Americunt masters by fluke did hit one of the 2 missiles and even that caused damage as the debris spread over a wide area and Saudi shitheads are complete panic mode. Unfortunately, the Riyadh airport is shut down or there would have been serious casualties. The Yemenis need to hold their missiles until this coronashit is over and launch a barrage.

      • Garga

        At least 3 explosions can be heard on other videos of Riyadh north.
        Nothing from Jazan so far.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Yes, I saw them and the debris is quite far flung so the damage is more serious. But the Saudi idiots are hunkered down and most streets are empty so the Yemenis should wait before firing a more concentrated volley. The FACT that they traveled 1100 kms again without being detected is a great coup for the Ansarallah. The Americunt radar systems are as shitty as their dud patriots. The flight time is over an hour so evading radars is not easy.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    This was sample of Yemeni capability. One of the missiles hit a military warehouse as the Saudi shitheads have acknowledged two casualties. As General Sari said, “more surprises are in store” in 2020.

    • Assad must stay

      I hope Saudis did not intercept anything

    • Azriel Herskowitz

      The Houthi desert rats only have those ballistic missiles because of Iran. So those aren’t “their” capabilities. And Patriot AD battery shot down the Iranian missiles before they could reach their targets. All this does is makes the world more angry at Iran, and the world is uniting to destroy them :)

    IMHO, the suadis should cut and run before the Houthis home in on his royal highness. Once the saudis lose a few Bentley’s and suffer damage to a few palaces, their war in Yemen will suddenly become very real.

    Or they could just move their missile defences in an attempt to destroy these missiles above the heads of the hoi polloi.

  • occupybacon

    Houthis should embark 2-3 ambulances, ride to Riyadh in fool speed and sounding sirens and take over the royal palace.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      It is protected by Americunts and Britfags.

      • Traiano Welcome

        An even match then! Tally ho!
