The Arab Coalition on Sunday intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden drone launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia towards Saudi Arabia’s Jazan.


“The Houthi militia’s hostile attempts are systematic and deliberate, targeting civilians and civilian objects,” the Coalition said in a statement.


It also affirmed that it takes the necessary operational measures to protect civilians in accordance with international humanitarian law.


Earlier on Sunday, the Coalition intercepted and destroyed a drone launched by the Houthis towards Saudi Arabia’s Khamis Mushait.
