Houthi militants had tried to hit a civilian facility in Saudi Arabia’s southern border province of Najran with a drone carrying explosives, the Arab Coalition supporting Yemen’s legitimate government reported.

“The Houthi-backed terrorist militia of Iran continues to carry out acts of terrorism that pose a real threat to regional and international security by targeting civilian objects and Saudi civilian facilities, as well as citizens and residents of all nationalities,” said Colonel Turki Al-Maliki.

Earlier on Monday, Al-Maliki said Houthis fired two ballistic missiles toward the holy city of Makkah and Jeddah but both were shot down by Saudi air defense forces.

The Iran-backed Houthis have fired dozens of missiles at targets in Saudi Arabia, including the capital Riyadh, since the Arab Coalition intervened in 2015 to restore the government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, which was ousted in a Houthi coup.
