Yemeni army targets SW Saudi Arabia by explosive-laden drone

TEHRAN, Dec. 19 (MNA) – A spokesman for the Saudi coalition said that Yemeni forces have targeted Khamis Mushait in the southwest of Saudi Arabia by an explosive-laden drone.

Arab media outlets reported on Sunday morning that the Yemeni Armed Forces had launched a drone operation against the Saudi coalition.

Al-Arabiya quoted Turki Al-Maliki, the spokesman for the Saudi coalition as saying that Yemeni forces have fired a drone from the Sanaa Airport towards southern Saudi Arabia.

"We are taking the necessary measures to protect ourselves in accordance with international law," Al-Jazeera quoted a spokesman for the Saudi criminal coalition as claiming.

News sources on Saturday reported that the Yemeni army and popular committees had been able to defeat Saudi coalition forces, take control of new positions in northeastern Yemen.
