Saudi Arabia's air defence system has reportedly intercepted two Houthi missiles in the Mecca province, Reuters reported, citing a statement from the kingdom’s embassy in Washington DC, ONA reports quoting sputniknews.

The Houthi faction has denied Saudi media reports of an attack, according to Reuters.

A spokesperson for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen reported that the Saudi air defence neutralized "aerial targets" flying over areas in the Jeddah and Taif provinces, Reuters reported.

This is not the first time the Saudi military has reported a missile interception over their territory.
