Qatar condemns Yemen Houthi missile attacks on Saudi Arabia

30 March 2018

According to Turki al-Malki, the spokesperson for the Saudi Arabia-led Arab coalition, three of the missiles were fired at Riyadh late Sunday and one Egyptian civilian was killed when fragments landed in a suburb, the BBC reported.

Saudi forces said they intercepted seven missiles on Sunday, including over the capital Riyadh, in a deadly escalation that coincided with the third anniversary of the coalition's intervention in Yemen.

Khattab Gamal, a 27-year-old Egyptian electrician who lived in the Riyadh house hit by the debris, told Reuters he and his 15 housemates were awoken by loud explosions.

This is not the first time that Houthis fired missiles toward Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia has been engaged for the past three years in an aerial bombing campaign against Yemen's Huthi rebels, who it says are being supplied by Iran.

They called on Griffiths to force the rebels on offering evidence over their alleged seriousness in salvaging the Yemeni people including revealing information about the forced disappearances of Yemenis, releasing all prisoners and ending the siege of cities.

The Houthis said on their Al-Masirah television that Riyadh's King Khalid International Airport was among the targets.

Javani added that Saudi Arabia is also seeking to cover up its embarrassing failures in Yemen by leveling such accusations.

Some reports say that a few of the Patriot interceptor missiles failed and either detonated in midair or fell into residential areas during the attack. Saudi Arabia previously responded with multiple airstrikes on Yemen's capital Sana'a.

The Yemeni government blamed the Iranians for the missile attacks.

"The people's battle today is to restore sovereignty", Saleh al-Sammad, the head of the Houthi-led Supreme Political Council, told the crowds at Sabeen Square. These words followed his meeting with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and came two days after the Senate narrowly voted (55-44) to continue us military support to the Saudi-led campaign to return the United Nations-backed government to its capital in Sana'a. A report by United Nations experts concluded that Tehran was involved in arming the Houthis. Though the Saudis targeted some missile caches early in the invasion of Yemen, some missiles are known to have survived, and have been fired during the fighting.

Previous missile attacks, which included several Iranian-modified scud missiles targeting an airport in Riyadh, were met with immediate retaliation.
