RIYADH: Saudi Arabia on Sunday shot down a explosive-laden drone deployed by the Houthi rebels in Yemen, targeting Jizan airport in the kingdom.

The Saudi air force intercepted the explosive-laden Houti drone, targeting Jizan airport, close to the southern border with Yemen, the Saudi-UAE-led coalition fighting the rebels said.

"While we confirm our right to defend our country, we stress that the terrorist Houthis will pay a dear price," said alliance spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malaki, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.
