Saudi Arabia said its forces were able to intercept a drone launched by the Houthi militia which targeted civilian areas in the southwestern city of Khamis Mushait.

Saudi Arabia’s air defenses also destroyed a second Houthi drone in Yemeni airspace heading for Saudi territories.

The attacks came on Monday as the Yemeni army carried out a military operation on the positions of the Houthi militia in Hajjah to regain control of some military positions east of the Harad district.
