Arab Coalition Destroys Houthi Drone Fired from Saada

The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen said Thursday that it intercepted a drone launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militias from Yemen’s Saada towards the Kingdom.

The Coalition’s official spokesman, Colonel Turki al-Maliki, was quoted as saying by the Saudi Press Agency that the drone was shot down.

He said that the repeated attempts by the militias to carry out terrorist attacks are the result of losses they have suffered in the battlefield.

Maliki’s statement came just hours after the Houthis fired a “hostile projectile” toward Abha International Airport.   

Earlier on Wednesday, the Coalition destroyed a Houthi drone fired towards Saudi Arabia from Yemen.
