For its part, the Saudi News Agency quoted a spokesman for the Saudi-Emirati coalition, Turki al-Maliki, as saying that the coalition intercepted and destroyed two ballistic missiles and 6 drones loaded with explosives launched by the Houthi group in Yemen towards the Kingdom.

The head of the intelligence committee of the Houthi group, Abdullah al-Hakim, said - in statements published by the group's official website - that the Houthis have a bank of vital and important goals in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Israel, he said.

The Houthi intelligence official warned Saudi Arabia and the UAE against targeting oil and economic installations in the Ma'rib Governorate, saying, "Our arm is strong, long and able to extend to all installations of the oil and economic aggression countries and destroy them."

The Houthis had announced last week that the air force had carried out a large-scale operation with a large number of "Qasef 2" drones, and had targeted the operations and control room at Najran Airport (south of Saudi Arabia), arms stores and aircraft shelters at King Khalid Air Base in Khamis Mushayt (southwest) and other military targets.

Last Wednesday, the Saudi-Emirati coalition fighters resumed violent raids on areas in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, which have been under the control of the Houthi group for nearly 6 years.

Since 2015, the coalition has carried out military operations in Yemen in support of pro-government forces against Iranian-backed Houthi militants who have controlled provinces including the capital, Sanaa and Saada, since 2014.
