The Saudi-led Arab coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen intercepted and downed on Tuesday three drones that were flown towards Saudi Arabia by the Iran-backed Houthi militias.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said the drones were launched from Amran in Yemen towards civilian targets in Jazan and Abha in Saudi Arabia.

He condemned the terrorist act, saying it coincided with United Nations envoy Martin Griffiths’ visit to Sanaa.

The Houthis are persistent in attempting to target civilian airports in Abha, Jazan and Najran, “proving their criminality and extremist ideology against the Yemeni people and neighboring countries,” he added.

The coalition will take “necessary measures to target the Houthis’ hostile terrorist military infrastructure,” Maliki vowed.

The vital areas have been populated with SHORAD. We might see an increased number of aerial strikes against Houthis in the next few days.
