Saudi Arabia says bomb-laden Yemen rebel drone intercepted

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) – Saudi Arabia said it has intercepted a drone launched by Yemen’s Houthi rebels targetting ‘civilian infrastructure’ in the kingdom.

The announcement on the state-run Saudi Press Agency early yesterday did not identify what the drone targetted.

The Houthi’s Al-Masirah satellite television station said the Houthis sought to again target Abha regional airport, which they’ve hit several times in recent weeks, as well as a power station in Abha.

Attacks on Abha’s airport have wounded dozens and killed at least one person.

The Houthis have stepped up launching bomb-laden drones in Saudi Arabia.
