The Arab Coalition on Thursday said it intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden drone that belongs to the Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemeni airspace as it was heading towards Saudi Arabia.
The Houthis continue to deliberately launch attacks on civilians and civilian objects, the coalition added in a statement.
The coalition said it was taking the necessary operational measures to ensure that civilians are protected and to deal with the imminent Houthi threat.
On Wednesday, Saudi Arabia’s defense forces intercepted and destroyed an explosive drone launched by the Iran-backed group targeting the Kingdom’s southern region.
The Arab Coalition has previously said the hostile and deliberate attempted attacks by the Houthis to target Saudi Arabia constitute war crimes.
