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

Saudi Arabia blames Iran for supplying projectiles for rebel missile attacks, a charge Teheran rejects.

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

The missile is thought to have been fired by Houthi rebels in Yemen, who a Saudi-led coalition has been bombing since March 2015, when it intervened in support of ousted President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi in an effort to prevent Houthis from maintaining the capital of Sanaa.

The Houthis´ Al-Masirah TV channel did not say when the attack took place or give details of any damage.

"The air drive launched the execution of air strikes with the Qasif 1 aircraft on Aramco in Jizan (province)", al-Masirah said on its official Twitter account, consistent with Reuters.

The arms monitor Conflict Armament Research (CAR) said it had evidence showing the Qasef-1 and other Houthi kit was made in Iran and was not of indigenous design and construction "in contrast to Houthi statements".
