Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis in Yemen said an explosive-laden drone
launched on Tuesday by the group in the direction of Saudi Arabia had fallen
inside Yemeni territory.
The Iran-aligned Houthis said earlier they had launched drone attacks on the airport of Abha in southwest Saudi Arabia near the Yemeni border.
A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, Colonel Turki al-Maliki, denied that Abha had come under attack.
He added a drone launched by the Houthis from the Yemeni capital Sanaa “fell” over a residential area in Amran, a province controlled by the group just north of Sanaa.
