The coalition announces the destruction of a Houthi march targeting the Saudi Najran Airport

The Saudi-led military coalition announced the destruction of a drone launched by the Houthi group on Sunday towards Najran Airport, in the south of the Kingdom.

This came in a statement issued by the coalition, which was reported by the Saudi Al-Ekhbariya channel, on its Twitter account.

The statement said that the Saudi defenses destroyed a drone that tried to target Najran airport.

He pointed out that the plane’s shrapnel was scattered over the Al-Araysah residential neighborhood (Najran), without any civilian casualties.

The statement considered that “Al-Houthi’s violations offend the policy of restraint and efforts for a political solution in Yemen.” There was no immediate comment from the Houthis on what the coalition reported.

The Saudi-led military coalition announced on Saturday the implementation of a qualitative operation that destroyed 13 Houthi military targets.

For its part, the Houthi group bombed Saudi sites using 14 drones.

The Houthis used to launch ballistic missiles and booby-trapped drones at Saudi regions, in return for repeated declarations by the coalition to thwart these attacks, despite Arab and international calls to abide by the ceasefire.

Yemen has been witnessing for nearly 7 years a continuous war between the pro-government forces backed by an Arab military alliance led by the neighboring Saudi Arabia, and the Iranian-backed Houthis, who have controlled governorates including the capital, Sanaa, since September 2014.
