The Saudi-led Arab coalition announced on Friday that it had destroyed two armed drones fired by the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen towards the Kingdom.


Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said the terrorist Houthis deliberately fired the aircraft at civilian locations in Saudi Arabia.


He condemned Houthis for their persistent attacks, which he said amounted to war crimes.


The coalition is taking all the necessary measures to protect civilians in line with international humanitarian law, he stressed.


Organization of Islamic Cooperation Secretary-General Dr. Yousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen strongly condemned the terrorist Houthis’ renewed attempt to attack the Kingdom.


He stressed that the OIC stands by Saudi Arabia and supports all the measures it takes to safeguard its security and stability.
