Saudi Arabia’s air defenses have intercepted a Houthi explosive drone targeting the southern region of the Kingdom, the Arab Coalition fighting the Iran-backed Houthis said in a statement.
The attack announced early on Sunday comes two days after three bomb-laden drones fired by the Iran-backed Houthis at Saudi Arabia were intercepted, targeting the southern cities of Jazan and Khamis Mushait, the Arab Coalition confirmed.
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.
