The city of Najran is located just a few kilometres away from the Yemen border. It has been subject to attempted attacks in the past but an attack today in Ramadan is unlike what we’ve seen before.
According to Al Arabiya English, the Houthi militias tried attacking a civilian site in Najran using a bomb-laden drone.
Arab Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki has warned that there would be “strong deterrent” to such attacks.
The attack comes just a day after the Houthis tried attacking Makkahand Jeddah using ballistic missiles that were brought down by the kingdom’s Patriot air defence batteries.
