RIYADH, June 19 (Xinhua) -- The Saudi-led coalition involved in a war in Yemen on Saturday intercepted a drone launched by Houthi militia toward Saudi border city Khamis Mushait, Al Ekhbariya local TV reported.
The coalition renewed its accusation against Houthis of targeting civilians, vowing to take necessary military procedures to protect them.
Various Saudi cities, especially those on the southwest border, are frequently targeted by drones and missiles. Some successful attacks reached vital establishments, such as oil facilities and airports, causing fires and property damage, according to media reports.
Saudi Arabia has been leading a war in Yemen against the Houthi militia since 2015, in support of the government of Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
