Saudi forces destroy armed drone targeting ‘civilians’ in the kingdom

Saudi has seen a string of attacks launched by the Houthis in recent months

Saudi forces intercepted and destroyed an armed drone fired launched by the Houthis towards the kingdom, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

The latest drone attack, targeting Saudi Arabia’s southern region, took place on Monday, officials said.

Coalition spokesman Brigadier General Turki Al-Malki said: “Joint coalition forces have intercepted and destroyed [Monday] a bomb-laden UAV launched systematically and deliberately by the terrorist Houthi militia to target civilians and civilian objects in the southern region.”

Saudi has seen a string of attacks launched by the Houthis in recent months.

Late last month, a projectile attack launched by the Houthis hit a fuel tank at a petroleum products distribution station in Jeddah.

No casualties were reported in the explosion and Saudi Aramco’s fuel supplies also remained unaffected, officials said.

In September, five civilians in the city of Jazan were injured after they were hit by debris from a military projectile launched from Yemen.

The projectile also caused damage to the “façade of a civilian object protected by international humanitarian law” and three civilian vehicles, officials said.
