Saudi Arabia’s air defenses destroyed a Houthi drone targeting civilians in the Kingdom, the Arab coalition said on Sunday.
The Iran-backed Houthi militia frequently launches cross-border attacks using explosive-laden drones and ballistic missiles targeting populated areas in the Kingdom’s southern region.
Earlier on Sunday, the coalition said Saudi defenses intercepted and destroyed four drones that tried to target the southern region.
Bahrain strongly condemned the attack, saying it “reflects the militias’ continued sinister and systematic attacks to target civilians and innocent lives.”
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed Bahrain’s support for all measures Saudi Arabia takes to ensure the security and safety of its territory, citizens and residents.
