Saudi Tit for Tat with Houthis

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said early on Wednesday it intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden drone launched by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis towards Saudi Arabia’s southern area, state news agency (SPA) reported.

For their part Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis targeted and hit military and sensitive objects in Saudi Arabia’s Abha international airport with drones early on Wednesday, the military spokesman for the group Yahya Sarea announced on Twitter.

There was no immediate confirmation of the incident from Saudi authorities.

Yemen has been mired in conflict since a Saudi-led coalition intervened in March 2015 to restore the Yemeni government ousted from power in the capital Sanaa by Houthi forces in late 2014.
