Saudi intercepts Huthi missiles over curfew-locked Riyadh, border citySaudi air defences intercepted Yemeni rebel missiles over Riyadh and a city on the Yemen border, leaving two civilians wounded in the curfew-locked capital amid efforts to combat coronavirus, state media said Sunday. Multiple explosions shook Riyadh late Saturday in the first major assault on Saudi Arabia since the Huthi rebels offered last September to halt attacks on the kingdom after devastating twin strikes on Saudi oil installations. The Iran-aligned insurgents claimed responsibility around 15 hours after the attacks, with a rebel spokesman calling it “the largest operation of its kind” as the Riyadh-led military intervention in Yemen enters its sixth year.
