But the Saudi-led coalition foiled the attack. “The Arab Coalition intercepte­d and destroyed two drones launched by the Houthi militia from Yemen’s city of Sana’a towards Saudi Arabia,” the Saudiowned Al Arabiya TV said on Twitter yesterday. Houthis have recently stepped up missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia.
