Saudi Arabia says it intercepted drone launched by Yemen's Houthi rebels

Saudi Arabia says it has intercepted a drone launched by Yemen's Houthi rebels targeting civilian infrastructure in the kingdom.

The announcement on the state-run Saudi Press Agency did not identify the target of the drone.


The Houthi's Al-Masirah satellite television said the Houthis sought to target Abha regional airport again. The airport, as well as a power station in Abha, has been hit several times in recent weeks injuring several and killing at least one person.


The Houthis have stepped up launching bomb-laden drones in Saudi Arabia amid the kingdom's years-long war in the country against them.


The Iranian-backed rebel's campaign comes amid heightened tensions between Iran and the US over the faltering nuclear deal with world powers.
