The Arab coalition intercepted and destroyed a booby-trapped drone launched by the Houthis toward the Kingdom's southwestern city Khamis Mushait on Saturday.

Earlier on Saturday, falling debris from a Houthi drone intercepted by Saudi air defense forces damaged houses in the southern region of Jazan, authorities said.

The shrapnel scattered over a residential neighborhood in Ahad Al-Masarihah governorate, but fortunately did not result in death or injury, said Col. Mohammed Al-Ghamdi, spokesperson for the Civil Defense Directorate in Jazan.

The Iran-backed Houthi militia launch bomb-laden drones towards the Kingdom often.
