Saudi military forces have intercepted missiles fired by Houthis several times since March 2015, when a Saudi-led coalition launched a war against the rebels and their allies after they captured northern Yemen and ousted the Saudi-backed president from power.

According to videos published on social media, smoke could be seen rising near Riyadh's King Khalid International Airport. It said the attack was conducted using a Yemeni-made, long-range missile called the Burqan 2H.

Airstrikes later in the day targeted Yemen's capital Sanaa, causing homes to shake and breaking windows.

According to AP, Houthi-owned news outlet Al-Masira reports that the ballistic missile was sacked late Saturday (4 November) from across Saudi Arabia's southern border by Houthi militants in Yemen.

Earlier this week, a suspected airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition killed at least 29 people, including children, in northern Yemen.

From the border with Yemen to the capital of Saudi Arabia, about 500 km. It was intercepted by the Patriot missile defense system, leading to shrapnel falling over an uninhibited area east of the airport, the statement said.

The attack came after the Houthi militia failed to launch a missile at Saudi Arabia on October 30.

The Saudi military may have successfully used a missile defence system to shoot down the incoming threat.

State-run news channel Al-Ekhbariya said the missile "was of limited size (and) no injuries or damage" were reported.

The explosion occurred in one of the terminals of the worldwide airport king Khalid, 35 km from Riyadh.
