Saudi Arabia intercepted what they described as a “hostile target” over the capital of Riyadh, state media revealed.
“I heard a loud sound and thought that something had fallen from the sky,” one resident said, Agence France-Presse reported Saturday. “The whole house was shaking.”
Official media did not say where the hostile target had originated from, but the country has come under repeated attack from Huthi rebels in Yemen.
The Iran-supported insurgents have been locked in a years-long struggle to overthrow the internationally recognized government of Yemen, which is being propped up by Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi intervention, which began in 2015, has faced international criticism for exacerbating a humanitarian crisis in the impoverished nation.
Under the Trump administration, the Huthis had been branded as terrorists, something which incoming Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said he would review in an effort to ease the suffering.
