Coalition air defenses forces supporting the legitimate government in Yemen shot down three drones targeting southern Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, which were headed for southern Saudi Arabia and the cities of Jazan and Abha.
The drones were intercepted in Yemeni airspace, with the third launched from Amran in Yemen.
The coalition spokesman, Col. Turki Al-Maliki, said in a statement that, the Houthi militias continue targeting civilians and civilian airports in Abha, Jizan and Najran and continue to threaten regional and international security.
Saudi News Agency (WAS) quoted Al-Maliki saying while UN envoy is exiting in Sana’a, Houthi rebel militia continues attempts of targeting infrastructure and civilians in Saudi Arabia.
He added that such attempts unearth Houthi militia criminal will and its escalation of using terrorist approaches and threatening regional and international security.
