The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen said Thursday it has intercepted eight explosive-laden drones and three ballistic missiles launched by Yemen’s Houthi militias toward Saudi Arabia.


“A cowardly act of hostility by the Houthi militia in firing drones and ballistic missiles was thwarted,” the Coalition said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).


The hostile attacks were targeting civilians, according to the statement.


The Coalition reiterated that it was taking strict measures to deal with the sources of threat to protect civilians.
