KARACHI: Saudi Arabia’s air defences intercepted and destroyed a bomb-laden drone launched by Houthi militia towards the southwestern city of Khamis Mushait, spokesman for the Arab Coalition Brigadier-General Turki Al-Maliki said.

He said that the Saudi air defence forces destroyed the explosive-laden drone before it could reach the target.

“We are taking operational measures to protect civilians and civilian objects from hostile attacks,” Turki Al-Maliki said in a statement.

The coalition said it thwarted all hostile Houthi attempts at targeting civilians and civilian objects.
