Witnesses in Riyadh reported hearing explosions overhead and seeing smoke. Saudi state news agency SPA said missiles had also been fired at the southern cities of Najran, Jizan and Khamis Mushait. Houthi rebels have fired dozens of missiles into Saudi Arabia in recent months. Iran denies arming the rebels, who have been fighting a war against Yemen’s government and the Saudi-led coalition since March 2015. Tehran says the missile launches are “independent actions” in response to Saudi-led coalition aggression.
