India condemns 'renewed missile' attacks targeting civilians in Saudi Arab

Houthi rebels operating in northern Yemen offered no signs of a coming détente with Saudi Arabia on the eve of the third anniversary of Yemen's civil war after launching a barrage of missiles into the kingdom's capital city of Riyadh on Sunday.

The Saudi military said that Houthi militants have fired dozens of missiles into Saudi Arabia since past year, all of which were intercepted. A press conference will be held Monday at 1 p.m. ET "to provide more details about this aggressive act".

Riyadh has been the target of similar attacks, but this is the first one that has resulted in a fatality.

Air defenses also repelled missiles fired at the southern Saudi cities of Najran, Jizan and Khamis Mushait, Malki said.

All missiles were intercepted and destroyed, the statement added. These actions by the Houthi Militia highlights the increased capacity of terrorist organizations and those who stand behind them, as state sponsors of terrorism like the Iranian Regime. The report by Conflict Armament Research was dismissed by the Iranian mission to the United Nations.

Houthi rebel chief Abdelmalik al-Huthi on Sunday said his fighters were ready to make more "sacrifices" against the Saudi-led coalition, in an address marking the war's third anniversary. Online videos showed what appeared to be a missile fuselage lying on a street in Riyadh.

Iran has repeatedly denied arming the Houthis in Yemen, despite claims by the United States and Saudi Arabia that the evidence of an arms connection is irrefutable.

One person, an Egyptian national, was killed by fragments of the missile fired in the Riyadh attack. The militants even tried to devastate the King Khalid International Airport on November 4 but could not overcome the Saudi resistance. Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry publicly stated that it blamed Hezbollah for smuggling missiles into Yemen.

A woman uses her mobile phone to take picture of the damage created by debris, after ballistic missiles fired by Yemen's Houthi militia, fell at a house in Riyadh.

The coalition threatened retaliation against Tehran, accusing it of being behind the multiple attacks on the Kingdom.

The rebel Huthis confirm they launched the attack via their Al-Masirah television.

On March 26, 2015 Saudi Arabia along with 10 of its regional allies, and with the blessing of the United States launched an indefinite military operation in Yemen in a bid to restore Saudi-allied former President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

On Thursday, the Houthis said they fired a short-range ballistic missile toward the Saudi oil giant Aramco.

The Houthis are backed by Iran and its members follow the Shia Islamic branch of Zaidism.
