According to Saudi Arabia's Al Arabiya broadcaster, the kingdoms' air defense forces have intercepted a missile over the capital Riyadh on Wednesday, following at least three blasts that were heard in the city.
At the same time, there has been no immediate comment from the government yet.
The statement comes after the Houthis said earlier in the day that they launched a drone strike on a facility belonging to Saudi Aramco in southern Saudi Arabia.

Last month, the Saudi-led coalition reported it had intercepted and destroyed seven ballistic missiles, fired at Saudi Arabia from Yemen; three of them targeted Riyadh.
Since 2015, the Saudi-led coalition has been conducting a military campaign against Houthis in Yemen at the request of the country's internationally recognized President Hadi.
