Two explosive drones launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia targeting the southern region of Saudi Arabia have been intercepted and destroyed, according to a statement from the Arab Coalition.

Two booby-trapped Houthi boats were also destroyed early Sunday morning before an imminent attack on Yemen’s Hodeidah, according to the Arab Coalition.

Earlier this week, Saudi Arabia proposed a new peace initiative to end the ongoing conflict in Yemen between the internationally-recognized government and the Iran-backed Houthis.

The new initiative includes a nationwide ceasefire that will be implemented under the supervision of the United Nations, the Kingdom’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Prince Faisal bin Farhan said during a press conference in Riyadh on Monday.
