The Saudi-led military coalition spokesman said late on Monday that the coalition had intercepted and destroyed a drone launched by the Houthi group at civil targets in the kingdom, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

“The drone has not achieved its targets,” a coalition statement said.

Since 2015, the Saudi-led coalition has been fighting the Houthi rebels in Yemen inorder to support the internationally-recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The Iran-aligned Houthis have repeatedly launched attacks against targets in neighbouring Saudi Arabia.

A TV station run by the Houthis reported earlier on Monday that drone attacks had hit targets in southern Saudi Arabia.
