Iran-aligned Houthis in Yemen fire missiles at Saudi capital


yemen world news

(Worthy News) - Yemen's Houthis fired a salvo of ballistic missiles at Saudi Arabia's capital on Wednesday - an attack Saudi authorities said they intercepted in the skies over Riyadh.

The assault took place a day after Saudi Arabia's top Western ally the United States pulled out of a deal with Iran over its disputed nuclear program and could signal an uptick in tensions between Riyadh and regional rival Tehran.

The Houthis said the missiles were launched at economic targets in Riyadh, the group's al-Masirah TV reported. At least four blasts were heard in the city center, but there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
