Saudi Arabia intercepts missile over Riyadh -Al Arabiya

Yemen rebel missiles, drones shot down over Saudi

The war in Yemen, the region's poorest country, started in 2014 after Houthi rebels seized control of the capital and began pushing south towards the country's third-biggest city Aden.

The Houthis have stepped up ballistic missile attacks on the kingdom in what it says is retaliation for the air raids.

Last month the Saudi army intercepted seven missiles over Riyadh launched by the rebels.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump tweeted about Pruitt, saying, "Rent was about market rate, travel expenses OK". The OGE does not have authority to take action with respect to any possible violation, according to CNN .

Houthis claimed the attack on Twitter, saying the intended target of the attack was the Saudi defense ministry in Riyadh.

One of the drones was targeting the Abha worldwide airport in Asir province, which led to a temporary suspension of air traffic, and a second was approaching a "civilian object" in Jizan province, he said.

The group unveiled the Qasef-1 drone previous year.

Aramco in a statement Wednesday said, "Saudi Aramco operations and facilities, including our facilities in Jizan, are operating normally and safely".

Sharaf Lokman, a spokesman for the Houthis, said the attack came after Saleh al-Samad - president of the Supreme Political Council that runs Yemen's capital, Sanaa, and other rebel-held areas - declared the start of "a year of ballistic missiles".

In a second tweet, the group announced that the drone would carry out airstrikes on the state oil and gas company Aramco in the southern Saudi city of Jizan, near the border with Yemen.

China will reduce trade barriers, Trump says
Trump "has a very close relationship with President Xi, and we'll continue to discuss those issues with them", Mnuchin said. But he predicted that the USA may prevail because the Chinese need American goods more than the other way around.

Primarily based on a United Nations report, larger than 9,245 people have been killed in Yemen since March 2015, larger than half of which had been civilians.
