Arab Coalition Downs Houthi Drones Flown towards Saudi Arabia

The Saudi-led Arab coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen announced on Saturday that it had intercepted and downed drones launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen towards Saudi Arabia.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki denied Houthi claims that their drones had accurately reached their targets.

The truth is that the aircraft were destroyed by coalition defenses, he stressed.

He vowed that the “desperate” and ongoing Houthi attempts to target civilians and civilian facilities will always be confronted and thwarted.

The Houthis’ hostile capabilities will be neutralized according to International Humanitarian Law, Maliki added.
