JEDDAH: A documentary film on the unification of Saudi Arabia will be showing on the website of the King Abdulaziz Foundation for Research and Archives (Darah), and be available in several languages to commemorate the Kingdom’s national day.
Darah’s YouTube and Facebook pages will be showing episodes covering the various historical battles that the founder of Saudi Arabia King Abdulaziz undertook and the regaining of Riyadh.
The film called “Unify and Build,” produced by Darah, documents the history of the Kingdom and protects the country's cultural heritage, drawing on well-established references.
The film features images and scenes of King Abdulaziz, his official meetings and the historical figures he met.

Houthi rocket targets desalination plant in Al-Shuqaiq

  • Saudi officials are working to identify the missile
  • The Houthi militants claimed the attack

DUBAI: A rocket fired by Houthi militia exploded near a desalination plant in Al-Shuqaiq southwest of Saudi Arabia, but did not cause any damage or injuries, state news agency SPA reported on Thursday.
Military and security organs were working to identify the type of rocket that was fired, Arab Coalition spokesperson Col. Turki Al-Maliki said in the report.
The Houthi militants claimed responsibility for the attack through their media channels.
The attack constitutes a war crime, as it targets civilian facilities, and shows that Iran is supplying new weaponry for the militants, Al-Maliki said, adding that the Houthis continue to use Hodeidah port to smuggle arms and endanger regional and international peace.
The Arab coalition would take immediate action to protect civilians against the Houthi attacks, Al-Maliki said.
