Riyadh has announced the names of 40 members of the Houthi members, and announced financial rewards for information leading to their arrests, Arab news reported.
The kingdom also accused the Houthi members as being involved in various terrorist activities.
According to an official statement, the measure has been taken to curb the activities of the Houthis in order to harm Saudi Arabia’s security with the support of Iran.
The statement said the increased cooperation between Hezbollah and the Houthis in exchanging expertise and military capabilities is a direct threat to Riyadh’s security and stability.
Saudi officials have called on the people with any information about any of the announced names to contact the appropriate authorities.
The statement also said informants’ identities will be kept secret.
It came after the Yemeni army confirmed it had targeted Saudi Arabia’s King Khalid international airport in Riyadh with a long distance Borkan H2 ballistic missile.
“Our Yemeni forces succeeded in launching a missile, a Borkan H2 long distance missile, at the King Khalid international airport in north eastern Riyadh which was in response to the massacres committed by the US-Saudi coalition in Yemen,” said Colonel Aziz Rashed, a spokesman for the Yemeni army, early on Sunday.
Saudi Arabia also confirmed the attack, saying its air defense intercepted the missile, bringing it down to the north of the airport.
