Snow falls in Tabuk at night, vanishes at sunrise

TABUK: Areas around the city of Haql witnessed rainfall accompanied by light snow on Friday evening on Al-Lawz Mountain, while light snow, known as the “white guest,” fell in Tabuk in the evening and disappeared at dawn.
The local population gathers every year to watch this phenomenon. They arrive at the mountain early to welcome the snow and consider this time to be the most beautiful in the year.
Snow usually falls during the night and continues until the early morning hours; then it gradually disappears leaving some areas of Jabal Al-Lawz covered with snow.
Security forces, traffic police, civil defense, and the Red Crescent were present in the area and the roads leading to Jabal Al-Lawz to organize traffic.

Houthi missile fired towards Jazan intercepted by Saudi air defenses

  • The missile was fired towards the Saudi Arabian province of Jazan in the early hours of Thursday
  • It was launched from the Houthi strong-hold in the Yemeni province of Saada

DUBAI: Saudi air defenses intercepted a ballistic missile fired by the Houthi militia towards the border province of Jazan in the early hours of Thursday morning, Al Ekhbariya TV reported.

The ballistic missile was launched from the Houthi strong-hold province of Saada.

The missile was spotted at 1:58am on Thursday and was headed towards Jazan city, targeting civilian and populated areas.

The Saudi Royal Air Force (RAFF) was able to intercept the missile and destroy it.

The Iranian-backed Houthis have fired a number of missiles over the border at Saudi cities, including the capital, Riyadh, in breach of international laws banning the targeting of civilian areas.

And on Wednesday UAE coalition forces intercepted two boats in the Red Sea being used by the Houthis to target a tanker.
