The Arab Coalition intercepted and destroyed four explosive-laden drones launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia towards Saudi Arabia, the coalition’s spokesperson Colonel Turki al-Maliki said on Friday.
The drones were destroyed in Yemeni airspace, he added.
The coalition’s forces are highly efficient when it comes to addressing Houthi’s threats and thwarting them, according to al-Maliki.
“The Joint Forces Command will undertake and implement all necessary measures to protect civilians and civilian objects in accordance with the customary international humanitarian law,” he added.
Friday’s attack is the latest attempted assault by the Houthis who have violated their part of the ceasefire 4,276 times in 45 days, al-Maliki said on Thursday.
Targeting civilians crosses a “red line” and the Arab Coalition will not allow it, the spokesman had said at a press conference on Thursday.
“Targeting civilians is a red line and we will not allow it,” he said.
