The reports come amid growing tensions between Saudi Arabia and Yemen’s Houthis, with the two engaging in a series of attacks against each other on Sunday. It is currently unclear if the explosion is linked to the standoff between the warring parties.
An explosion has been heard in Saudi Arabia’s eastern city of Dhahran, Reuters reported, citing two witnesses.
The reports come less than an hour after the Arab coalition announced that it had repelled two ballistic missiles launched by the Houthis towards the southern city of Jizan.
