Arab Coalition downs three Houthi drones targeting Jazan, Abha

The Arab Coalition supporting the legitimate government in Yemen has intercepted and downed three drones launched by the Iran-backed Houthis in the two Saudi cities of Jazan and Abha, the coalition’s spokesperson said.

“While the UN special envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, is in Sanaa, the Houthi militias continue targeting civilians and civilian airports in Abha, Jizan and Najran and continue to threaten regional and international security,” the coalition spokesman, Colonel Turki al-Malki, said in a statement.

A Syrian resident of Saudi Arabia died last month from wounds sustained in a drone attack on Abha Airport that was claimed by the Houthis.

In response, the coalition has targeted the group’s military sites around the Yemeni capital Sanaa and the port city of Hodeidah.
