 At least two missiles have been intercepted above Saudi Arabia’s capital of Riyadh and another over the southern city of Jazan, Al Arabiya news reported.

The Arab Coalition confirmed to the Saudi Arabian al-Ekhbariya channel a ballistic missile was intercepted and destroyed over the skies of Riyadh.

Residents and citizens in the northern districts of Riyadh reported hearing three loud explosions around 11:20 pm local time on Saturday.

According to Al Arabiya, the attacks come more than a day after the Arab Coalition had intercepted and destroyed drones launched by the Houthi militia targeting the Saudi Arabian cities of Abha and Khamis Mushait.

Saudi Arabia has faced repeated attacks in recent years from drones and missiles fired by the Houthi militia from the Kingdom’s southern border with Yemen.

Earlier this year, Saudi Arabian Military Industries said it was working on developing a new counter-drone system to protect the Kingdom's vital infrastructure and military bases.
