The Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen attempted for the third time to attack the holy city of Makkah with ballistic missiles.
Saudi air defenses intercepted and destroyed two rockets fired towards Makkah. The first was intercepted over Taif city and the second was intercepted over Jeddah.
Saudi official authorities are set to make an official announcement over the development later.
The Houthis first attempted to attack Makkah in October 2016 and a second time in July 2017.
