The Coalition to Fight Legitimacy in Yemen said Thursday it intercepted and destroyed a drone launched by Yemen's Houthi militias towards Saudi Arabia's southern city of Khamis Mushait.


Coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Malki reiterated that the militias’ attempts to target civilians are tantamount to war crimes.


He said the Arab Coalition will take all necessary measures to protect civilians in line with the international humanitarian law.
