Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah says its forces have fired a ballistic missile towards the Saudi capital, Riyadh, in retaliation for the regime’s deadly attacks, al-Masirah TV reported.

Mohammed Abdulsalam, a Houthi spokesman, said the Burkan (Volcano) H-2 missile was fired towards al-Yamamah Palace, the official residence of King Salman.

Saudi media claim that the missile has been intercepted.

Reuters reporters, however, say they have heard a blast in Riyadh and seen a plume of smoke rising above the Saudi capital.

An AFP correspondent also heard a loud explosion at 1050 GMT, shortly before the scheduled unveiling of the Saudi budget, which is usually announced from Yamamah Palace by the king.
