Saudis shoot down two Yemeni rebel UAVs in country’s airspace

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi air defenses on Wednesday shoot down two unmanned Yemeni rebel drones in southern Saudi Arabia, a spokesman for the Riyadh-led coalition fighting in Yemen says.

One of the drones was targeting the Abha international airport in Asir province, which led to a temporary suspension of air traffic, and a second was approaching a “civilian object” in Jizan province, Colonel Turki al-Malki says in a statement published by the state-run Saudi Press Agency.
