Saudi-led coalition intercepts Houthi drone launched at Jizan airport

CAIRO (Reuters) - Saudi-led military coalition said on Thursday it had intercepted drones launched by Yemen’s Houthi group that was targeting Jizan airport, a statement on Saudi state media said.

Earlier, the Houthis said they carried out drone attacks on Jizan and Abha Saudi airports.

Iran-aligned Houthis, who are fighting in neighbouring Yemen, have repeatedly launched attacks against targets in Saudi Arabia, which is leading a coalition battling them.
