Yemen’s Houthi rebels have reportedly fired a surface to surface missile that hit a Saudi military camp 40 kilometer west of Riyadh on Sunday night, the Financial News said.

According to some media reports, the Saudi Ministry of Defence has not commented on the incident, but a number of local citizens reported on Twitter that the missile hit a military camp located to the west of al-Mazahimiyah, a town near Riyadh, it added.

According to Al-Masdar News, the Houthi rebels reportedly announced the successful launch of a variant of Russian Scud-type missile known as “Borkan” at around 8:00 p.m. GMT.

Yemen’s SABA News agency quoted a Houthi spokesperson announcing the attack as a “successful test-fire on a precision long-distance ballistic missile.”
