Arab coalition intercepts Houthi drone fired from Saada
The Arab coalition intercepted and destroyed a Houthi (Ansarallah) drone on Thursday (August 28th) launched from Yemen’s Saada toward Saudi Arabia, Arab coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki said in a statement.
"Attempts by the Iran-backed Houthi militia to launch drones will fail," he said, adding that the coalition is taking all measures to protect civilians.
The Arab coalition confirmed on Wednesday that a cruise missile launched by the Houthis landed at Saudi Arabia’s Abha International Airport, with no injuries reported so far, Al-Arabiya reported.
Earlier in the day, the coalition said it had intercepted and destroyed a Houthi drone fired from Yemen’s Sanaa toward territories within Saudi Arabia.
