Saudi-led coalition involved in a war in Yemen on Thursday intercepted a bomb-laden drone launched by Houthis toward the kingdom's border city of Najran.

Turki Al Maliki, the coalition spokesperson, accused in a statement on the Saudi Press Agency the Houthi militia of deliberately targeting civilians and civilian sites.

Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud called during an Arab League meeting on Wednesday upon the international community to tackle the frequent Houthi attacks.

The militia has been targeting the kingdom's cities with drones daily.

The coalition foiled most of the attacks before reaching their targets.

The civil war in Yemen started late 2014, while the coalition intervened in 2015 to support President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
