Arab Coalition Forces intercepted and destroyed a booby-trapped Houthi drone on Monday morning.

According to a statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, Brigadier General Turki Al Malki, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) launched by the Houthi militia specifically to target civilians in the Saudi Arabian city of Khamis Mushait.

“These acts of aggression to deliberately and systematically target civilians and civilian objects by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia are war crimes,” said Al-Malki.
