Hariri, Lebanon's most prominent Sunni politician, announced he was stepping down on November 4 while visiting his ally, Saudi Arabia, and lashed out at Hizballah and Iran.

The authority said in two tweets that the Saudi Air Defence managed to intercept a ballistic missile towards Riyadh and that the rocket landed on the airport campus and did not cause any significant damage. He reiterated his country's support for the oil-rich kingdom in confronting security threats.

"Talk about Hariri being pushed to resign are lies and aim at distracting the Lebanese people", Saudi State Minister for Gulf Affairs Thamer al-Sabhan told Al-Arabiya television on November 6.

The comments came after Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman accused Iran of "direct military aggression", linking Tehran to the launch of a ballistic missile fired from Yemen towards the worldwide airport in Riyadh on Saturday.
