Saudi Arabia Allies Seeking to Form Arab NATO to Counter Iran

The missile was destroyed near Riyadh's King Khaled global airport and was said to be of "limited size".

A long-range ballistic missile was sacked at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, the Houthi TV channel Al-Masirah reported.

Saudi Arabia said the missile was shot down by its air defense forces, with fragments of the missile landing in an uninhabited area north of the capital.

It is unclear if any damage was caused or if there have been any casualties.

Saudi Arabia's air defense forces on Saturday evening intercepted a ballistic missile fired from Yemen toward the kingdom's global airport near the capital, Riyadh, state media reported. The missile was allegedly aimed at the King Khalid International Airport.

Saudi forces have reported shooting down Houthi missiles before.

Congress has become a laughing club: PM Modi in Himachal Pradesh
His countering speech for the upcoming election has defined the Congress leaders indirectly as evil. He also defended his government's demonetisation decision, saying it aimed at ending corruption.

"We have reports - eyewitnesses on the ground and video that hasn't been verified yet - of outgoing fire, which might well be air defence missile fire coming out of the airport". For the Houthi rebels to have fired a missile that far and that accurately, is a bit of a game changer.

Houthi rebels have fired dozens of missiles towards Saudi Arabia, but this is the first time Riyadh has been targeted.

The Saudis, who back Yemen's internationally recognised government, accuse the Houthis of starting the war.

At least 40 Houthi rebels were killed in clashes with government forces in the southwestern province of Taiz, the Yemeni army said Saturday.

The Saudi-led alliance said the strikes unleashed on Wednesday had hit a "legitimate military target" of rebels in the area.
