According to media sources, Saudi Air Defense officials said that a ballistic missile was intercepted in northeastern Riyadh on Saturday, November 4. Local sources reported an explosion at the King Khalid International Airport (RUH) at approximately 20:20 (local time). There are some reports that the missile was fired from Yemen by Houthi rebels. According to local media, airport operations have not been affected. Details are still emerging. Remain vigilant.
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 Riyadh are advised to monitor the situation via local media sources and remain vigilant.
