The Saudi-led Arab coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen announced on Tuesday that the Iran-backed Houthi militias had attempted to attack a vital facility in the city of Najran.

Coalition spokesman Turki al-Maliki revealed that the Houthis sought to attack the facility with explosives-laden drones.

The Houthis are continuing their terrorist attacks that pose a real threat to regional and international security through targeting civilian facilities and the people themselves, he added.

He condemned the failed attack in the strongest of terms, vowing that the joint command will take all deterrent measures in line with International Humanitarian Law to counter the Houthi violations.
