Saudi forces this year have reportedly shot down several missiles from the Yemeni rebels on multiple occasion and is now leading a military campaign against them.

Saudi air defence forces were quoted by local media as saying they intercepted a missile north-east of the capital, which is thought to have come from Houthi rebels in Yemen, although this has not yet been confirmed, Express reports.

The missile was brought down near King Khaled Airport on the northern outskirts of the city and did not cause any casualties, said state-owned Al Ekhbariya TV.

The coalition has been involved in the war in support of the elected Yemeni government against Houthi rebels for more than two years, with no signs of reaching an end.

Some, including the authors of a United Nations report, have accused the Saudis of causing devastation and the deaths of thousands, as a result of their involvement in the war.
