Saudi Arabia intercepts missiles, drones from Yemen

Sudan asserts to keep its troop in Saudi-led Yemen campaign

Saudi officials have not yet commented on the report.

Beyond saying they died while "performing their patriotic duty", no additional information was given on the time or circumstances of their death.

Al Arabiya said earlier that Saudi air defense forces had intercepted a missile over Riyadh after at least three blasts were heard in the capital, which has previously been targeted by Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.

"The missile force carried out a large-scale ballistic missile attack on various parts of Saudi Arabia", the group's Al-Masirah TV said.

One of the drones was targeting the Abha global airport in Asir province, which led to a temporary suspension of air traffic, and a second was approaching a "civilian object" in Jizan province, he said.

Yemeni sources said flights at the airport have been canceled due to the strike.
