Saudi Arabia: 3 Ballistic missiles fired by Iran-backed Houthi terrorists intercepted over Riyadh, Jizan

BREAKING: At least two ballistic missiles launched by Iran-backed Yemeni Houthi terrorists were intercepted by Saudi air defense systems over Riyadh and another missile was intercepted over the port city of Jizan.

Residents in the northern districts of Riyadh reported hearing three loud explosions around 11:20 pm local time.

The attacks come a day after the Arab Coalition had intercepted and destroyed drones launched by Houthi terrorists targeting the Saudi Arabian cities of Abha and Khamis Mushait.

Saudi Arabia has faced repeated attacks in recent years from drones and missiles fired by the Iran-backed terrorists from the Kingdom’s southern border with Yemen.

Earlier this year, Saudi Arabian Military Industries said it was working on developing a new counter-drone system to protect the Kingdom’s vital infrastructure and military bases.
