Saudi Air Defense intercepts Houthi missile fired from Yemen on September 23

TIMEFRAME expected from 9/24/2017, 12:00 AM until 9/26/2017, 11:59 PM (Asia/Riyadh). COUNTRY/REGION Saudi Arabia


On late Saturday evening, September 23, a Houthi ballistic missile launched from neighboring Yemen was intercepted by Saudi Air Defense amid celebrations for Saudi Arabia's national day. The missile reportedly targeted the Saudi coalition's main airbase Khamis Mushait. No casualties or damage were reported.


The southern region of Saudi Arabia is a frequent target of Houthi attacks and cross-border incidents are common. Missiles fired from inside Yemen often land on Saudi soil or are intercepted by Saudi air defense systems and Houthi rebels often cross into Saudi territory to target Saudi soldiers.


Individuals in Saudi Arabia are advised to avoid the Yemeni border area due to the risk of further attacks.
