Arab coalition forces shoot down Houthi drone

RIYADH, Nov 30 (KUNA) -- The command of the Saudi-led Arab coalition to support the legitimate government in Yemen said Tuesday its air defense forces intercepted and destroyed a bomb-laden drone controlled by the Houthi militants.
The drone was downed shortly after taking off from Sanaa international airport, the command said in a tweet carried by the Saudi Press Agency.
The collation reaffirms that any attempt by the Houthis to target civilians will meet a firm and prompt response, the command reminded, noting that the coalition's operations remain consistent with the rules of the international humanitarian law. (pickup previous) mdm.gb
