The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen intercepted and destroyed an explosives-laden drone that attempted to attack Abha International Airport located in the southwestern part of Saudi Arabia.


The Arab Coalition said late Tuesday that the ground air defenses also downed another drone sent by Yemen’s Houthi militias that attempted to attack the southern Saudi city of Najran.


It stressed that it will deal decisively with attempts to target civilians, saying its operations are in line with international humanitarian law.
