RIYADH —
The Arab Coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia have intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden drone launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia, targeting the Kingdom’s southern region.

In a statement late Wednesday, the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen said that the Iranian-backed militia is deliberately targeting civilians in the Kingdom.

The coalition added that its forces are taking operational measures to protect civilians and civilian facilities from hostile acts.

The attacks come just hours after the coalition forces intercepted and destroyed two booby-trapped drones and three ballistic missiles launched by the Houthi militia toward the southern city of Jazan.
