Al Arabiya reported that the strikes targeted and hit centers where the Iran-backed Houthi militia builds and puts together ballistic missiles and drones to target Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states.

On Friday, the Arab Coalition intercepted and destroyed several ballistic missiles and explosive-laden drones targeting Saudi Arabia launched by the Houthis.

Friday’s attack was the fifth failed drone attack launched by the Houthi militia towards the Kingdom during the week.

The Iran-backed militia is against the UN-recognized government, supported by the Arab Coalition, and currently controls Yemen’s capital Sanaa.
