DUBAI: The Arab coalition destroyed a Houthi drone launched from Yemen's Al-Jawf provionce towards Saudi Arabia, state news agency SPA reported on Monday.
Coalition forces intercepted the drone while it was still in Yemen’s airspace.
Arab coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki said, the militia’s continued attempted attacks would end in failure.
Earlier on Monday, the coalition announced that they successfully destroyed three Houthi drones and intercepted six ballistic missiles targeting Saudi Arabia over 24 hours.
The missiles, which were launched from Saada, were targeting civilian areas in Al-Jazan, Al-Maliki said.
He denied Houthi claims saying the militia launched a drone targeting Riyadh.
Earlier in August, 10 drones were fired at the Shaybah natural gas liquefaction plant in Saudi Arabia, near the UAE border – the Houthis claim responsibility for the attack.
There were no injuries and operations were not disrupted.
