RIYADH-SABA
The Arab Coalition backing Yemen's government against Houthi rebels announced today that the Saudi military has shot down a Houthidrone that was trying to attack Abha airport and also destroyed another drone that was trying to attack a civilian facility in Jayzan.

The Coalition forces' spokesperson Col. Turki al-Maliki said that "the air defense system protecting the airport (of Abha) spotted an unidentified object heading towards the airport, dealt with it according to rules of engagement and destroyed it."

"The air traffic was brought to a halt at the time in accordance with the rules of aviation and then returned back to normal,"the Saudi Press Agency "SPA" quoted al-Maliki as saying on Wednesday.

Al-Maliki said that by examining the debris of the object by the Coalitionspecialists, it was found to be a hostileHouthidrone with Iranian specifications. "It was trying to target the airport which is protected under international humanitarian law."

He said that by examining the debris of the other object that was trying to attack the civilian facility it was found identical to the debris from the drone that attempted on the airport.

The Coalition Forces command warned in the strongest terms the Iranian-backed Houthi militia against targeting civilian facilities and civilians. It saidthat the militia's terrorist style vehemence to attack civilian facilities by any means will be deterred firmly.
