Houthi drone shot down by Saudi air defenses

RIYADH: Saudi-led coalition air defenses intercepted a drone rigged with explosives that Houthi terrorists launched from Yemen early Saturday, a coalition official said.

"The Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia launched it in a systematic and deliberate manner to target civilian objects and civilians in the southern region," Brigadier Turki Al-Maliki, spokesman of the Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen, said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA). The statement did not say where the weaponized drone was shot down.
