The Arab Coalition said it downed a Houthi drone headed toward a civilian area in the Saudi city of Abha on Saturday.
Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said that the drone was launched from the Yemeni governorate of Amran. He stressed that the coalition will take "all measures to paralyze and neutralize all hostile capabilities of the militia within international humanitarian law."
Meanwhile, the Arab Coalition had said earlier that it started an operation to target military positions in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.
The targets included air defense sites and ballistic missile depots.
