Saudi Arabia Blocks Two Drones Launched at City Near Yemen Border – Report

According to reports by the Saudi Press Agency, two drones launched by Houthi rebels toward the city of Khamis Mushait have been intercepted. However, others have reported a pair of ballistic missiles were downed.

Whether missiles or drones, the flying objects crashed into the city and according to Asharq Al-Alawsat, five people, including a woman and child, were injured in the crash.

​Footage shot at the scene of the crash shows wreckage strewn among several buildings and in the street.

They were reportedly shot down by a Patriot missile defense system manufactured in the United States.

The Saudi Arabian city of Khamis Mushait sits about 60 miles north of the border with Yemen, where the Saudi-led coalition has been waging a brutal war against the Houthi rebels in the north of the country since 2015. Near the city is the King Khalid Air Base, a Royal Saudi Air Force installation.
