Yemen’s Houthi drone targeted civilian facility in Najran: Saudi coalition

Reuters , Tuesday 21 May 2019

The Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen said a civilian facility in Saudi Arabia’s province of Najran was targeted on Monday with a drone carrying explosives. It did not mention casualties.

On Monday, the Houthis rebels denied earlier Saudi media reports that it had fired a ballistic missile toward Mecca, Islam’s holiest site, at a time of heightened tensions between Tehran and Gulf Arab states, and Washington.

The group's Al Masirah TV said Houthis targeted an arms depot at Najran airport in Saudi Arabia which caused a fire to break out in the facility,

Saudi Arabia and the UAE are leading a military coalition since 2015 to try to restore the internationally recognised government ousted from power in Sanaa by the Houthis in late 2014.
