The Saudi-led military coalition spokesman said late on Monday that the coalition had intercepted and destroyed a drone launched by Yemen's Houthi group at civil targets in the kingdom, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
"The drone has not achieved its targets," a coalition statement said.
The Iran-aligned Houthis, who are fighting the coalition in Yemen, have repeatedly launched attacks against targets in neighbouring Saudi Arabia. A TV station run by the Houthis reported earlier on Monday that drone attacks had hit Saudi Arabia’s Abha airport and Tihama power station.
The Saudi owned Al-Arabiya TV channel said on Monday that air traffic at Abha airport is normal after intercepting a Houthis’ aircraft.
No further details were immediately available from the Saudi-led coalition.
Earlier Monday, a Saudi military spokesman said that naval forces from the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen foiled an attempted attack on a commercial ship in the Red Sea by Houthi forces.
A tweet by Saudi state television quoting Colonel Turki al-Malki did not name the ship or provide other details about the incident.

However a Houthi military spokesman denied the group had targeted commercial ships in the Red Sea, the group's Al Masirah TV reported.
