Saudi-led coalition says strike hit a legitimate target in Yemen

The air forces confirmed that no damages or injuries were reported in the attempted attack targeting the Saudi capital, and the airline traffic was not disturbed.

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

Saudi Arabia's Al Ekhbariya TV said it was brought down north of King Khaled Airport. The missile was allegedly aimed at the King Khalid International Airport.

Saudi Arabia said its forces have intercepted a ballistic missile fired from Yemen towards one of the kingdom's major global airports on the outskirts of the capital, Riyadh.

The missile was sacked across Saudi Arabia's southern border by Yemen's Houthi rebels, according to several Houthi-owned media outlets, including Al-Masirah and SABA.

Al Jazeera could not independently verify the reports. For the Houthi rebels to have fired a missile that far and that accurately, is a bit of a game changer.

Saudi military forces have intercepted missiles fired by Houthis several times since March 2015, when a Saudi-led coalition launched a war against the rebels and their allies after they captured northern Yemen and ousted the Saudi-backed president from power.

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

Some, including the authors of a United Nations report, have accused the Saudis of causing devastation and the deaths of thousands, as a result of their involvement in the war.
