The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen said Thursday that it destroyed five ballistic missiles and four explosive-laden drones launched by the Houthi militias toward Saudi Arabia.


The missiles and drones aimed to target the southern Saudi city of Jazan.


The Coalition said the attempted attacks are a continuation of the Houthis’ systematic hostile attempts to target civilians.


It added that it would take necessary operational measures to protect civilians in line with international law.
