Riyadh, May 26, 2019, SPA -- Official Spokesman for the coalition forces "coalition to support the legitimacy in Yemen" Colonel Turki Al-Malki said that at 07:14 o'clock this morning, the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces (RSADF) managed to intercept and destroy a drone carrying explosives launched by Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist militia in an attempt to target King Abdullah Airport in Jazan, being used daily by thousands of Saudis and expatriates without any regard for international humanitarian law and its customary rules, which gives special protection to civilian objects.
Colonel Al-Malki further said that Iranian-backed Houthi militia targets civilian goals and facilities, and none of their goals have been achieved, as they have been founded and destroyed.
He added that as we affirm our legitimate right to defend our country, we also confirm that Iranian-backed Houthi militia will pay dearly.
