Yemen’s Iranian-backed Houthis launched ballistic missiles at the Saudi Defense Ministry in Riyadh and targeted two Qasef-1 drones at Abha airport and at a Saudi Aramco oil facility in the southern city of Jizan. Saudi officials claim to have intercepted the missiles and destroyed the Qasef-1 drones, which appear to be of Iranian origin. Saudi coalition spokesman Turki al-Maliki accused Iran of being behind the latest attacks.
