The Arab Coalition on Saturday evening intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden drone launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia targeting Saudi Arabia, Saudi Press Agency reported quoting statements from the Coalition’s spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki.
“Joint Coalition Forces have intercepted and destroyed this evening (Saturday) a bomb-laden UAV launched systematically and deliberately by the terrorist Houthi militia to target civilians and civilian objects in the Southern Region,” Al-Maliki said in a statement.
Saturday’s interception of the Houthi launched drone was the third in two days as the Coalition forces had on Friday intercepted and destroyed two explosive-laden drones launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia.
The failed attacks are the latest in the series of armed drones launched by the Houthis in recent weeks. — SPA
