The Saudi-led Arab 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.

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

All Houthi attempts to attack the Kingdom are doomed to fail, Maliki stressed, adding that 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 Saudi-led Arab coalition will continue to deter the Houthi actions to neutralize and destroy their abilities in line with international humanitarian law
