Ballistic missiels intercepted over Saudi capital, Riyadh

I came across these reports on Twitter.


Multiple Ballistic Missiles Intercepted over Saudi Capital Riyadh



24 March, 2018

At least two Ballistic Missiles have been intercepted over Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Residents of that capital city report large explosions and debris falling from the sky.

Doors and windows in my apartment in Riyadh were shaking few minutes ago. Others reporting they heard sounds of loud explosions.

APPARENTLY FOUR MISSILES WERE INTERCEPTED

Here is Saudi Arabia firing Patriot Missiles to hit the incoming attack:


Information is scarce at this time, but it would be likely the missiles were fired from Yemen, and were supplied by Iran. This would be the SECOND time that large ballistic missiles supplied by Iran have been intercepted over the Saudi Capital.

It is not clear how much longer the Saudis will wait before declaring war against Iran.


UPDATE 5:36 PM EDT --
Yemen claims responsibility. Houthis have announced they launched missile strikes targeted at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, Abha Regional Airport in Asir, and Jizan Regional Airport.




In this video it can be clearly seen that a Patriot(?) interceptor hit the ground in Riyadh (via )
