Heavy rain expected in Yanbu until Thursday, Civil Defense warns

  • Picnickers and desert travelers have been warned to stay away from valleys during heavy rain

JEDDAH: The Presidency of Meteorology and Environment (PME) has predicted heavy rain for Yanbu until Thursday.
Due to the ongoing inclement weather across the Kingdom, Civil Defense has warned citizens and residents to remain careful.
The authority urged residents of these areas to avoid getting themselves into valleys and flooded areas.
Picnickers and desert travelers have been warned to stay away from valleys during heavy rain or flash floods, and not to risk crossing flood passages or intersections. Heavy rainfall has already taken several lives early this month, when different regions of the Kingdom were hit by severe weather conditions.

Coalition acts against Houthi drone capabilities in Yemen’s capital

  • The attacks are a continuation of previous strikes aimed at reducing Houthi capabilities

JEDDAH: The Arab coalition has began an operation to diminish the drone capabilities of the Houthi militia at a presidential palace camp in Yemen’s capital Sanaa, Saudi Arabia’s AlEkhbariya TV announced early Saturday.

Earlier this month, a Houthi workshop manufacturing unmanned drones and a launchpad were destoryed in a coalition strike.

The attacks are a continuation of previous strikes aimed at reducing Houthi capabilities, and counter their efforts at launching attacks against the Kingdom.

On Apr. 3, five people were injured, including a woman and a child, when two Houthi drones targeting civilian areas in Saudi Arabia were intercepted and destroyed.

In early March, Saudi Arabia’s Royal Air Defense Force again shot down a Houthi drone that was flying toward the Kingdom.
