Saudi-led coalition says intercepts drone launched by Yemen’s Houthi militia

RIYADH (Rahnuma): The Saudi-led coalition involved in a war in Yemen intercepted on Monday a drone launched by the Houthi militia toward the kingdom, Saudi Press Agency reported.

Turki Al Maliki, spokesman of the coalition, said the drone was spotted in the morning and downed in the Yemeni airspace before reaching its target.

He accused the Houthis of continuing to launch drones against civilians and civilian facilities, but added all drones were intercepted and destroyed.

The deterrent measures against Houthis would continue in accordance with the international humanitarian law, Al Maliki noted.
