Arab Coalition destroys armed drone fired by Houthis in Yemen's airspace

Arab Coalition forces on Monday intercepted and destroyed an armed drone launched by Iran-backed Houthi militia toward Saudi Arabia.

In a statement carried by Saudi Press Agency, the coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Malki also said: “The Joint Coalition Forces on Monday intercepted and destroyed in the Yemeni airspace a bomb-laden drone; launched systematically and deliberately by the terrorist Houthi militia to target civilians and civilian facilities in the Kingdom.”

The Houthi militia also stepped up cross-border drone attacks recently; in blatant defiance of the international humanitarian law and its customary rules.
