The Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen said Wednesday that it intercepted and downed a drone flown by the Iran-backed Houthi militias towards Saudi Arabia.

Arab Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said the drone was launched towards the Saudi city of Najran.

He stressed that all Houthi attempts to attack the Kingdom are doomed to fail, saying the Coalition has taken all necessary measures, in line with the best rules of engagement, to deal with these threats and protect civilians.

Maliki vowed that the Coalition will continue to deter the Houthi actions to neutralize and destroy their abilities in line with international humanitarian law.
