No real details at the moment as the news is just breaking about reports of a loud explosion over Riyadh airport with unconfirmed reports saying Saudis intercepted missile from Yemen.

Saudi air defence forces were quoted by broadcaster Al-Arabiya as saying they intercepted the missile north-east of the capital. A TV channel linked to Houthi rebels in Yemen said the missile was launched at the airport.

Official confirmation of the attack.

State news channel Al-Ekhbariya said the missile was "of limited size" and no damage was caused. A long-range ballistic missile was fired at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, the Houthi TV channel Al-Masirah reported.


A video has been posted by someone at the scene.

That's all we need now, more folly! beaver fever moon.

I guess that'll be Iran under the political microscope now, and likely plenty of ordinary civilians facing death if there is any retaliation.

Do the Houthi's have the ability to manufacture these missiles? Or is there an outside supplier like NK or Iran?

perhaps we should put our good 'allies" the House of Saud under the scope? Genocidal religious war and all that we are providing the weapons for

Exactly. Looks like Iran has been spurred on by its success in Iraq then Syria. Looks like they are getting serious in going after the Saudis now. Couple this with the Lebanese leader Hariri just resigning as he can't take any more assassination attempts on his life.

The rebels claim they fired a Burkan 2-H which is a Yemeni built missile.

Saudi Arabia vs Iran?

Any more reason needed to bail out of the ME and let them have at it?

Popcorn anyone?

It's basically a SCUD updated with NKorean tech.


Here's an old article about NK exporting to Yemen (and several other countries): www.theguardian.com...

Footage of what appears to be the Patriot battery firing. Looks like they shot off 4 of the missiles to intercept the missile
