CAIRO: Saudi-Led coalition intercepted and destroyed drones launched by Iran-aligned Yemen’s Houthis toward “civilian targets” in Saudi cities of Abha and Khamis Mushait, state news agency SPA said early Friday, citing the coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Malki.

The attack comes after Yemen’s warring parties had welcomed a UN call for an immediate truce on Thursday to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
