    The reports come less than 24 hours after the Houthis said they launched a drone attack on Saudi Arabia's Abha International Airport and King Khalid Air Base.

    The Saudi-led coalition has foiled a Houthi drone attack launched towards Abha Airport, Al Arabiya TV reported on Saturday, citing the coalition's spokesperson.

    On Friday, Yemen's Houthis claimed their Air Force launched a drone attack on Abha International Airport and the King Khalid Air Base.

    Yemen's Houthi movement has been engulfed in an armed conflict with Saudi-aided government forces since 2015. The movement has repeatedly launched attacks against Saudi Arabia, with the Abha International Airport being a frequent target.

    The latest attack comes as the United States intends to lift its designation of Yemen’s Houthis as a terrorist organisation.
