Arab Coalition spokesperson Col. Turki Al-Maliki said on Saturday that coalition forces intercepted and downed a Houthi drone that was directed towards Abha.

Al-Maliki said the Iranian-backed militia remained futile in their attempts to target the civilian areas as well as the civilian population.

The Arab coalition command would take strict measures to paralyze and neutralize all hostile capabilities of the militia within international humanitarian law and its customary laws, Al-Maliki said, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
