Saudi Arabia thwarts missiles while Yemen’s Marib fighting rages

Published on February 28, 2021 by

Saudi Arabia said it has intercepted and thwarted several aerial assaults by Houthi rebels in Yemen targeting the capital Riyadh and other southern cities.
The attack came as Houthi rebels push forward in the northern Yemeni province of Marib. They launched an offensive against the Saudi-backed Yemeni government there in early February. Saturday was the most violent day yet.
The Yemeni government has issued urgent calls for the Houthis to stop their offensive.
They have warned of a humanitarian catastrophe. Marib is already home to the largest concentration of displaced Yemenis
