  • Attacks come four days after a passenger aircraft was damaged in a drone raid on Abha airport
  • The booby trapped drones launched by the Houthis targeted civilians, Col. Turki Al-Maliki said

LONDON: The Arab coalition intercepted and destroyed two drones launched by the Houthi militia toward Khamis Mushait in southern Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

A third drone was shot down early on Monday.

The booby trapped drones launched by the Houthis targeted civilians and civilian property, coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki said. 

Speaking to Al Arabiya after the attack, Al-Maliki said “civilians are a red line” and that the coalition would respond by targeting Houthi militia leaders and members.

The afternoon attack comes four days after a passenger aircraft was damaged in a drone raid on Abha airport.
