DUBAI: The Arab coalition on Tuesday has intercepted a Houthi drone targeting Saudi Arabia’s Khamis Mushait, state TV reported.
The coalition said it is taking all operational measures to protect civilians from extremist attacks.
Earlier on Monday, the militia fired two ballistic missiles toward the city of Khamis Mushait.
The Arab coalition said the missiles were launched from Saada city in northwestern Yemen and landed in two uninhabited areas near the Kingdom’s southern border.
In recent weeks, the Houthis have intensified missile and drone attacks on the Kingdom, sparking condemnation from regional and international allies.
