The Saudi-led coalition said on Saturday it intercepted and destroyed two explosive-laden drones launched towards Saudi Arabia by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis.
The Jerusalem Post reports that there was no comment from the Houthi movement about the two incidents reported by the state-run Saudi Press Agency, which cited a coalition’s spokesman.
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.
Coincidently, the attack comes after Yemeni court issued death sentences against ten defendants including President Donald Trump, Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, and crown prince, Mohammed Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud for alleged war crimes.
The case against the defendants was held in their absence at Houthi-run Specialised Criminal Court in the Yemeni governorate of Saada over the Saudi-led coalition’s attack on a bus full of young boys in Dahyan in the Majz district
