Saudi air defences have shot down an explosive-laden drone launched by Houthi rebels towards the kingdom’s city of Khamis Mushait, Saudi state TV reported.
The botched attack comes just two days after a representative for the Houthi movement reported that the group had destroyed a US-made drone in the Sirvah region of Yemen's northern province of Marib.
Drone attacks against Saudi Arabia have been a regular occurrence over the past months. Most of the attacks have been successfully foiled by coalition forces.
The cross-border hostilities come against the backdrop of a civil war that broke out in 2014 in Yemen and continues to rage in the country to this day.
A coalition of several Arab states, led by Riyadh, joined the conflict in 2015 at the request of the country's President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, who fled to Riyadh in March 2015.
