Saudi Arabian military intercepted at least one missile above the capital Riyadh on Wednesday, Saudi-owned broadcaster Al Arabiya said.

A total of 18 Houthi rebels were killed and almost 30 others injured in the gunbattles with the national army forces in southwestern city of Taiz, according to a statement revealed by the media center of the pro-government forces in the city. Snapchat footage taken in Riyadh shows distinctive white and brown clouds of smoke in the sky.

Meanwhile, the Yemeni Defense Ministry reported that 30 Houthi fighters were killed in the air bombardment by Saudi-led warplanes in central al-Bayda Province.

Yemen's Houthis has stepped up missile attacks on the kingdom in what it says is retaliation for air raids by a Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iran-aligned armed movement. "This hearing will allow members to examine United States policy toward the Middle East as we grapple with these conflicts and approach a key deadline for the Iran nuclear agreement", he said.

Al Masirah TV said earlier the group had targeted a distribution facility in the city belonging to state oil giant Saudi Aramco.

The channel said in a tweet that the group had launched a "Qasef 1" drone aircraft heading for the Abha airport in the southwestern Saudi city of Aseer.

The group unveiled what it said was a series of drones, including the Qasef-1, at a ceremony past year.
