Earlier on Tuesday, the Arab Coalition intercepted and downed a Houthi drone that was launched from Yemen’s Amran province, and was heading toward Saudi Arabia.

The coalition’s spokesperson Turki al-Maliki had said that “attempts of the Iran-backed Houthis to launch drones reflect its losses on the ground.”
