RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s defenses intercepted an explosive-laden drone launched by Yemen’s Houthi militia toward the Kingdom’s southern region, state TV reported on Tuesday.
The Arab coalition said the drone was targeting the city of Khamis Mushait.
The Iran backed Houthis have been targeting civilian and civilian objects in the Kingdom almost on a daily basis since the beginning of the year, sparking widespread condemnation.
