The multinational coalition headquarters led by Saudi Arabia issued a notice in the early morning of the 15th local time that the coalition successfully shot down a drone carrying explosives.
The notice shows that the drone was shot down on the way from Yemen to Saudi territory, but it did not disclose whether the incident caused casualties, losses and the specific location of the drone was shot down.
The multinational coalition accused the Houthis of attempting to use drones to attack civilians and civilian targets in Saudi Arabia, saying that they will continue to take measures to counter it.
This is the fifth time in a week that Saudi Arabia has led a multinational coalition that claimed to have shot down the Houthi armed drone in Yemen.
In an interview with local media on the evening of the 14th, local time, Turki Maliki, spokesman of the Allied Command revealed that since the launch of military operations against the Houthi armed forces in Yemen in 2015, Saudi Arabia has shot down and intercepted a total of 515 drones and 345 ballistic missiles from Yemen.
In cooperation with coalition air strikes and ground offensives of Yemeni government forces, more than 700 Yemeni Houthi militants have been killed in the past four days.
