Three bomb-laden drones fired by the Iran-backed Houthis at Saudi Arabia were intercepted overnight Friday, targeting the southern cities of Jazan and Khamis Mushait, the Arab Coalition confirmed.
“We will take all necessary measures to protect civilians per international law,” the Coalition said.
Yemen’s Houthis attack Saudi Arabia on an almost daily basis. A top US general, speaking hours earlier, said Washington continued to support the Kingdom in the face of these attacks.
On Wednesday, US Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking said his biggest fear was a Houthi attack on Saudi Arabia that could kill American residents.
