The Arab Coalition intercepted two Houthi drones targeting the Saudi cities of Khamis Mushait and Jazan, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Saturday.

On Thursday, the Arab Coalition also intercepted two Houthi drones fired from Yemen’s Amran province targeting the southern Saudi city of Khamis Mushait.

“Colonel al-Maliki explained that all attempts by the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia to launch drones are doomed to fail and the coalition takes all operational procedures and best practices of rules of engagement to deal with these aircraft to protect civilians,” a statement on SPA read.

“The repeated terrorist attempts shows the despair of this terrorist militia and confirm the criminality of Iran’s proxies in the region and those who stand behind it,” al-Maliki said on Saturday.
