The coalition continues to carry out operations to protect civilians, a spokesperson said.

Houthis regularly carry out remote attacks on targets in southern Saudi Arabia.

An Arab-led coalition intervened in Yemen’s civil war in 2015 after a civil war broke out between the Houthis and the internationally-recognized government.

The attempted strike follows a battle in Yemen’s Marib in which 43 Houthis and 22 government forces personnel were killed.
