LONDON: The Arab coalition intercepted and destroyed two drones launched by the Houthi militia toward Khamis Mushait in southern Saudi Arabia on Sunday.
A third drone was shot down early on Monday.
The booby trapped drones launched by the Houthis targeted civilians and civilian property, coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki said.
Speaking to Al Arabiya after the attack, Al-Maliki said “civilians are a red line” and that the coalition would respond by targeting Houthi militia leaders and members.
The afternoon attack comes four days after a passenger aircraft was damaged in a drone raid on Abha airport.
