DUBAI (Reuters) – Saudi-led coalition forces trying to restore Yemen’s government intercepted a drone launched by Yemen’s Houthi militia towards the kingdom on Thursday, the state news agency SPA quoted the coalition’s spokesman as saying.

The spokesman said no airports or military sites had been hit.

Earlier, the Houthis said they attacked Abha airport in Saudi Arabia using drones, the group’s Al Masirah TV reported, citing a military spokesman.
