On Thursday, August 27, the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthi movement in Yemen reportedly intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile launched towards the Saudi city of Najran (Najran region).
Further Houthi missile attacks against targets in Saudi Arabia cannot be ruled out over the near term.
Yemen is engaged in a complex and deadly conflict, ongoing since Houthi rebels entered a civil war with the Yemeni government, supported by a Saudi-led coalition, in 2015. Houthi forces regularly attempt to carry out missile or drone attacks in Saudi Arabia.
Individuals in Saudi Arabia are advised to monitor developments to the situation and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
