A string of explosions ripped through King Fahd Airbase in the Saudi city of Ta’if as a ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Houthi rebels hit the Saudi base.

The attack, which is by far the deepest into the Saudi Kingdom, came two days after Saudi airstrikes killed and wounded more than 650 people in an attack on a funeral held in the Yemeni capital.

Dubbed Burkan-1, the 12.5 meter long ballistic missile is developed locally by Yemini experts with a range up to 800 km.

In the same context, two missiles fired from rebel-controlled territories in Yemen landed near an a US destroyer in the Red Sea, wounding two sailors but without causing material damage, according to US Navy.
