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.

The paper had earlier received an official warning by the body that supervises the Iranian press for the controversial headline.

Reminding the Al Saud regime of Iran's "power and position", the president noted that even the parties stronger than Saudi Arabia, such as the USA, its allies and all of its mobilized forces, have failed to harm the Islamic Republic of Iran. "Don't be anxious about Dubai's skyscrapers".

Following the attack, the Saudis accused Iran of "direct military aggression" by supplying missiles to Houthi rebels in Yemen.

This is not the first time Kayhan, run by veteran conservative journalist Hossein Shariatmadari, uses controversial headlines that are said to be against national interests.

Yemen's Houthi militia quickly claimed responsibility for the missile. He reiterated his country's support for the oil-rich kingdom in confronting security threats.

Hariri flew to Saudi Arabia on November 3 after meeting in Beirut with a top adviser to Iran's supreme leader, who described his coalition government as "a victory" and "great success" afterwards.

The sudden nature of his resignation has fuelled widespread speculation in Lebanon that the Saudi-allied politician has been caught up in a regional power struggle between Iran and Saudi Arabia and coerced into stepping down.

Since then, more than 10,000 people have been killed, millions forced from their homes, and the country facing severe starvation and a deadly cholera outbreak.
