At least two Ballistic Missiles have been intercepted over Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Residents of that capital city report large explosions and debris falling from the sky.
Doors and windows in my apartment in Riyadh were shaking few minutes ago. Others reporting they heard sounds of loud explosions.— Ahmed Al Omran (@ahmed) March 25, 2018
APPARENTLY FOUR MISSILES WERE INTERCEPTED
Here is Saudi Arabia firing Patriot Missiles to hit the incoming attack:

Information is scarce at this time, but it would be likely the missiles were fired from Yemen, and were supplied by Iran. This would be the SECOND time that large ballistic missiles supplied by Iran have been intercepted over the Saudi Capital.
It is not clear how much longer the Saudis will wait before declaring war against Iran.
Below is a photo showing one of the downed missiles - VERY LARGE!
Yemen claims responsibility. Houthis have announced they launched missile strikes targeted at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, Abha Regional Airport in Asir, and Jizan Regional Airport.
