Arab Coalition intercepts, destroys second Houthi drone targeting Saudi Arabia
The Arab Coalition said on Sunday it had intercepted and destroyed an explosives-laden drone launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia toward Saudi Arabia, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
Arab Coalition spokesperson Colonel Turki Al-Maliki said Arab Coalition forces were able to intercept and destroy the drone in Yemeni airspace on Sunday.
Al-Maliki added that the drone was launched by the “terrorist Houthi militia in a systematic and deliberate manner to target civilians in the Kingdom,” SPA reported.
This is the second attack on Sunday by the Iran-backed Houthi militia targeting Saudi Arabia.
The Arab Coalition also intercepted and destroyed early Sunday an explosives-laden drone launched by the Houthis toward the Kingdom.
The failed attack is the latest in the series of attempted attacks launched by the Houthis in recent weeks.
