Yemen rebel missiles, drones shot down over Saudi

Saudi-owned broadcaster Al Arabiya TV confirmed Saudi Arabia had been forced to intercept a ballistic missile launched by Yemen's Houthis towards the southern city of Jizan.

There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

Saudi Arabia's air defence forces intercepted a ballistic missile over Riyadh on Wednesday, state media said, after at least three blasts were heard and three clouds of smoke were seen in the sky above the capital.

The Houthis, in a statement carried by a news agency under their control, said the attack on Riyadh was directed at the defence ministry.

An Israeli military construction vehicle next to the security fence in northern Gaza was the target of an attempted.

The Houthis claimed attacks on Abha airport and Saudi Aramco, located in Jizan, via Al Masirah, publishing an infographic of the "Qasef 1" drone.

Guardiola on defensive after Manchester City's miserable week
It would have been different to go in 2-0. "The goal from Gabriel Jesus in Anfield was a goal, not offside". Of course Klopp said "Yes you are sitting too deep because you are not pushing up".

More than 10,000 people have been killed in Yemen since the beginning of the conflict.

The company is building a 400,000-barrel-per-day refinery in Jizan, part of a new economic city on the Red Sea, which is expected to become fully operational in 2019.

Aramco was not immediately available to comment on the missiles.

The missile is thought to have been fired by Houthi rebels in Yemen, who a Saudi-led coalition has been bombing since March 2015, when it intervened in support of ousted President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi in an effort to prevent Houthis from maintaining the capital of Sanaa.

The Houthis have repeatedly targeted the kingdom in retaliation for its offensive inside Yemen. Saudi Arabia and the coalition it leads in Yemen accuse the Houthi movement of being sponsored and backed by Iran, while Tehran and the rebels deny those charges.

After examining the debris, the coalition said it determined it was a Houthi aircraft.
