All attempts by the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia to launch drones are doomed to fail and the coalition takes all operational procedures and best practices of rules of engagement to deal with these aircraft to protect civilians," Colonel Al Malki was quoted by Saudi Press Agency, SPA, as saying.
