Yemen rebels fire ballistic missile on Saudi Arabia capital state TV reports

The reported missile launch on Tuesday was the Houthis' second since last month, when the group launched a rocket deep in Saudi Arabia that was intercepted near the Riyadh global airport.

Saudi Arabia's influential crown prince was said to be the target of the missile launch as he was supposed to hold a meeting at the al-Yamama palace over the kingdom's latest budget announcement, according to the al-Masirah's website.

In a press release on Tuesday, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said he was "horrified" by the attempted missile strike on Saudi Arabia's capital Riyadh. Al-Yamama palace is the Saudi royal court and also the main headquarters of the Saudi king's office.

"We urge the United Nations Security Council to hold Iran responsible for its repeated and blatant violations of Security Council resolutions", Sanders said.




The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen reportedly launched fresh airstrikes overnight on Wednesday.

King Salman visited Russian Federation in October, during which Russian Federation signed deals to supply Saudi Arabia with weapons worth at least 2.1 billion US dollars.

"We must all act co-operatively to expose the crimes of the Tehran regime and do whatever is needed to make sure they get the message".

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said that the Islamic Republic's "strong and official protest at the USA ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley's injudicious and baseless allegations was conveyed" to the Swiss envoy. "The Iranian-Houthis are putting all their effort into prolonging the conflict in Yemen and are only bringing ruin on the people of Yemen", a government spokesperson said.
