The Arab Coalition intercepted and destroyed a Houthi drone on Thursday launched from Yemen’s Saada toward Saudi Arabia, the coalition’s spokesperson, Colonel Turki al-Malki, said.

Al-Maliki added that the attempts by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia to launch drones will fail and that the coalition is taking all measures to protect civilians.

The Arab Coalition confirmed on Wednesday that a cruise missile launched by the Houthi militia landed at Saudi Arabia’s Abha International Airport and said no injuries were reported so far.

Earlier in the day, the Arab Coalition said it had intercepted and destroyed a Houthi drone fired from Yemen’s Sanaa toward territories within Saudi Arabia.
