The Coalition's Spokesman Col. Turki Al-Malki, said on Friday: "The Joint Coalition Forces have intercepted and destroyed this morning a bomb-laden UAV launched systematically and deliberately by the terrorist Houthi militia to target civilians and civilian objects in the Southern Region."
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia called on the UN Security Council to "shoulder its responsibility toward the Houthi militias, backed by Iran, to stop their threats to international peace and security, and to hold them accountable" for their violent activities.
"Such an act of terrorism that targets civilian infrastructure and threatens innocent civilian travelers is a heinous war crime, and the Houthi militias must be held accountable in accordance with international humanitarian laws," Al-Mouallimi said in his letter.
