Saudi Arabia destroys Houthi drones launched from Yemen

Cairo: Saudi-Led coalition intercepted and destroyed drones launched by Iran-aligned Yemen’s Houthis towards “civilian targets” in Saudi cities of Abha and Khamis Mushait, state news agency SPA said early Friday, citing the coalition spokesman Colonel Turki Al Malki.

The attack comes after Yemen’s warring parties had welcomed a UN call for an immediate truce on Thursday to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
