Yemen's Houthis targeted Saudi Arabia's defence ministry in Riyadh with ballistic missiles on Wednesday, the armed group's Al Masirah TV said on Twitter.

"The United States strongly condemns today's Houthi missile attack on Riyadh", State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said.

The announcement came after three blasts and clouds of smoke were seen in the sky in Riyadh.

The Yemeni army has been advancing towards the rebel-held capital Sanaa, which has been under Houthi control since the war began over three years ago.

The Houthis´ Al-Masirah TV channel did not say when the attack took place or give details of any damage. The Saudi led coalition has been performing airstrikes in war-torn Yemen since 2015, supporting government forces in their fight against the Houthis.

Colonel Turki al-Maliki, the spokesman for the Arab Coalition Forces fighting in Yemen, said that at 7:40 am local time air defense systems detected an object and dealt with it accordingly.

However, sources in Abha'a airport said the airport has stopped flights for security reasons following the drone attacks on Saudi Aramco. "This hearing will allow members to examine USA policy toward the Middle East as we grapple with these conflicts and approach a key deadline for the Iran nuclear agreement", he said.

The facility reportedly belonged to the oil massive Saudi Aramco.
