DUBAI: The Arab coalition intercepted a Houthi drone targeting the Saudi city of Khamis Mushayt on Sunday, state news agency SPA reported.
It was the latest in a spate of attacks launched by the Iranian-backed militia, and just hours after the Houthis had targeted the same southwestern Saudi city in a matter of hours.
The Sunday morning attack was launched from the Yemeni city of Sana’a.
There were also 10 drones that hit the Saudi Shaybah natural gas liquefaction plant near the UAE border earlier in August.
Arab coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki later told media that all attempts by the militia to attack Saudi Arabia would be thwarted.
And he said that the continued targeting of civilian areas including airports was in direct violation of international law.
