Saudi Arabia intercepts explosive-laden drone launched towards Abha airport
Saudi Arabia’s defenses intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden drone launched towards Abha international airport, the Arab Coalition said early Wednesday.
The Coalition also added that it intercepted and destroyed another explosive-laden drone which targeted Najran city in southwestern Saudi Arabia.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
However, earlier this month, Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthis have attacked Abha international airport with an explosive-laden drone injuring four civilians.
Since January, Yemen’s Houthis have ramped up their attacks on the Kingdom and launched dozens of cross-border aerial attacks on Saudi Arabia. The Iran-backed militia targeted civilian areas and energy facilities in the Kingdom with explosive-laden drones and ballistic missiles.
