Saudi says it intercepts Houthi missiles in Riyadh and southern cities

UPDATE 1-Yemen's Houthis say launched drone attack on Saudi Aramco facility

Yemeni drones target Saudi airport in Asir, Aramco facility in Jizan

The Houthis´ Al-Masirah TV channel did not say when the attack took place or give details of any damage.

They have frequently claimed attacks, including on Aramco facilities, that Saudi Arabia and its main ally the United Arab Emirates have either said did not happen or were intercepted. Saudi state media said air defences had intercepted a missile over the capital.

Yemen's Houthi rebels fired a ballistic missile at Saudi Arabia's capital, Riyadh, saying the projectile traveled more than 800km into the kingdom on Wednesday.

One of the drones was targeting the Abha global airport in Asir province, which led to a temporary suspension of air traffic, and a second was approaching a "civilian object" in Jizan province, Colonel Turki al-Malki said in a statement published by the state-run Saudi Press Agency.

The next day military sources said that among the killed Sudanese forces were two second battalion commanders, including Lt. Col. Ibrahim of El Hazem Brigade, and a financial affairs officer of the Sudanese Military Intelligence in Yemen named Tawfig Bashir Ahmed.

A video on the TV station's Twitter page said the ballistic missile was sent by the mainly Shia Islamic Houthi rebel movement in Yemen, which is fighting the Saudi-backed Yemeni government.

Their news agency SABA said four people were killed, including a woman and a child, and 10 others wounded in two air strikes on Wednesday in the Razih district of western Saada province. Turki al-Maliki, said that at 7:40 am local time, air defense systems were able to detect an unidentified object in the direction of Abha International Airport and was dealt with accordingly.

Arms monitor Conflict Armament Research says it has evidence that the drones used on Wednesday and other Houthi kit were made in Iran and was not of indigenous design and construction "in contrast to Houthi statements".
