The Houthis have repeatedly been trying to target Saudi cities and territories with ballistic missiles that the Kingdom’s defenses have responded to effectively.
At the time of the attack in early November, the spokesman for the coalition forces in support of legitimate goverrnment in Yemen, Colonel Turki al-Maliki, said that the rocket was aimed at Riyadh and was launched indiscriminately and absurdly to target populated civilian areas.
It was successfully intercepted and the fragments fell in an uninhabited area east of King Khalid International Airport.
