Iran-backed Houthis claim rocket, drone attacks on Saudi Arabia


A military spokesman for Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen on Sunday said the group's forces had launched rockets and drones at "sensitive" sites in the Saudi capital Riyadh and at economic and military sites in Jazan and Asir, near the Yemeni border, Reuters reported.


Saudi Arabian air defences intercepted two ballistic missiles on Saturday night launched by the Houthi group towards Riyadh and the city of Jazan, Saudi state media said on Sunday.
