RIYADH (Debriefer)--The Saudi-led coalition on Thursday thwarted a new Houthi attack against Saudi Arabia.
In a statement carried by the Saudi press agency, it said it intercepted and shot down an explosives-laden drone which was fired towards the province of Jazan.
The attempted attack coincided with a visit by the US envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking to Riyadh.
The coalition has been fighting the Iran-allied Houthi group in support of Yemen's internationally recognised government since 2015.
In retaliation, the group has been firing ballistic missiles and explosives-laden drones into Saudi territories, mostly those on the border with Yemen.
