Saudi-led Arab Coalition Forces intercepted and downed a Houthi drone launched from Sanaa towards Khamis Mushayt, SPA quoted Coalition Spokesman Colonel Turki Al Maliki as saying on Tuesday morning.

The drone was downed in the Yemeni airspace.
Al Maliki, said that the repeated failed attacks are a desperate measure to raise the morale of "terrorist elements" in the face of "human losses in military operations."
He added that all drone operations attempted by the terrorist Houthi militias are doomed to fail and that the coalition follows rules of engagement to prevent civilian casualties when responding to any threats.
Al Maliki concluded by affirming that the coalition will continue to implement deterrent measures against the militias in an effort to neutralise and destroy their capabilities in strict adherence with international humanitarian law and its customary rules.
