DUBAI (Reuters) -The Saudi-led coalition fighting Houthi forces in Yemen said on Monday it had intercepted and destroyed an explosive drone fired towards Abha airport in the south of Saudi Arabia.
A military spokesman for Yemen’s Houthis wrote on Twitter later on Monday that the group had hit an important military target at Saudi Arabia’s Abha international airport using a drone.
The Iran-aligned Houthi group regularly fires drones and missiles into Saudi Arabia. The coalition says it intercepts most of them.
The Saudi-led military coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015, backing government forces fighting the Houthis.
