The coalition also intercepted and destroyed two explosive-laden drones launched towards the Kingdom by Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthis.

The Saudi-Led coalition said on Wednesday that it intercepted two explosive-laden boats in the southern Red Sea launched by Yemen's Houthis from the Yemeni governorate of Hudaidah, according to state TV.

The Saudis have regularly accused the Houthis of using drones and missiles to attack Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi-led coalition also intercepted and destroyed two explosive-laden drones launched towards Saudi Arabia by Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthis, Saudi state TV reported early on Thursday.

Yemen has been locked in conflict since 2014 when the Houthis seized Sanaa, the capital, and then much of the country's north.

Fighting escalated in March 2015 when the Saudi-led coalition intervened to restore the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
