IslamNews – Yemen’s Houthi rebels on Sunday claimed to have carried out missile and drone attacks on “sensitive sites” in Saudi Arabia.
Rebel spokesman Yahya Saree described the attacks as “massive”, saying that six drone attacks targeted military sites in Abha and Khamis Mushait in southern Saudi Arabia.
The spokesman said a ballistic missile and several drones were also fired towards “sensitive sites” in the Saudi capital Riyadh.
“Our operations will continue and will expand more and more as long as the aggression and siege on our country continue,” the group said.
On Saturday, the coalition said it had intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile launched by the Houthis towards Riyadh alongside six drones launched towards the kingdom’s southern regions.
The Saudi Al-Ikhbariya channel also reported that a rebel drone was reported by the coalition on Sunday, but without giving any further details.
The official SPA News Agency also said shrapnel fell on several residential areas in the oil-rich country following the interception of a ballistic missile launched by the Houthis causing human and material losses.
