Saudi Arabia's air defence forces in the southern border province of Najran intercepted a drone fired by Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthis, the kingdom's Washington embassy said in a statement on Wednesday.

The Houthis' Al Masirah TV said earlier that the group had launched a drone attack on Najran airport, targeting hangars containing two planes. There have been no reports of damage or casualties.
