The Saudi-led Arab coalition intercepted and destroyed on Tuesday an armed drone fired by the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen towards the Kingdom.


Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maki said the aircraft was deliberately fired towards civilian areas in southern regions of the Kingdom.


He slammed the militias, saying their attacks are tantamount to war crimes.
