DUBAI (Reuters) — The Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iranian-aligned Houthi movement in Yemen on Thursday said it shot down an explosive-laden drone heading towards the kingdom, a statement published by Saudi state news agency SPA said.

The drone had been launched from Hodeidah governorate on Yemen’s Red Sea coast, the coalition said. It did not say where the drone was intercepted.

In his side, Houthi-run Al Masirah TV reported a coalition air strike on Thursday morning on the Saada area which borders Saudi Arabia.

  • After the United States, Yemen has the highest number of privately owned firearms per capita. Without minimising the importance of the more sophisticated and powerful weapons that the Houthis receive from Iran, it is appropriate to give credit where credit is due, namely to the Yemeni tradition of gun ownership. The people of every nation should be prepared to pay a heavy price to an invader who sets foot in their country.
