SANA’A --Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels claimed Sunday the attempted strikes that targeted the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh and other regions overnight, threatening more attacks.
“The operation was carried out with a ballistic missile and 15 drones… targeting sensitive areas in the enemy’s capital of Riyadh,” said Houthi spokesman Yahya al-Saree, according to the rebels’ Al-Masirah TV channel.
“Our operations will continue and will expand as long as the aggression and siege on our country continues.”
A Saudi-led military coalition — which has been backing the Internationally-recognised Yemeni government against the rebels since 2015 — said Saturday it thwarted a Houthi ballistic missile that targeted Riyadh and destroyed six armed drones launched towards southern Saudi cities.
A coalition statement carried on state media said the drones aimed to target “civilians and civilian objects” in the southern region, Jazan and Khamis Mushait.
Fragments of the missile scattered over several Riyadh neighbourhoods, damaging at least one home but no casualties were reported, Saudi’s state-run Al-Ekhbariya television said.
Saree on Sunday claimed those attacks as well, warning residents in the region to “stay clear from all military airports and sites”.
The Houthis have escalated attacks on the kingdom, while they step up an offensive to seize the Yemeni government’s last northern stronghold of Marib.
Yemen’s grinding conflict has claimed tens of thousands of lives and displaced millions, according to international organisations, sparking what the UN calls the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
