World A- A A+

The Saudi Arabian-led coalition in Yemen said it destroyed two explosives-laden drones fired by Yemen’s Houthi group toward southern Saudi territories, a Saudi-run television said on Saturday, Yeni Safak reports. 

Al-Arabiya TV said the coalition announced that Houthi rebels in Yemen targeted Khamis Mushait and Jazan.

Houthi military spokesman Yahya Sarei said the drones targeted King Khalid Air Base in the Khamis Mushait area.

He said the attacks were carried out in response to coalition attacks and the continued blockade imposed on the people of Yemen.

Iran-backed Houthi rebels frequently target the southern area of Saudi Arabia.
