Saudi Arabia’s defenses have destroyed a ballistic missile launched toward Jazan and an explosive-laden drone launched toward Najran, the Arab Coalition said in a statement on Friday.

The coalition also said that it’s monitoring “the source of hostilities,” adding that it’s still “practicing self-restraint.”

Earlier on Friday, the coalition said that the Kingdom’s defenses have destroyed nine explosive-laden drones launched by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthis.
