Cairo: The Saudi-led coalition said it intercepted and destroyed two explosives-laden drones launched by Yemen's Al Houthi militia towards Saudi Arabia's southern cities of Khamis Mushait and Jazan, state TV reported early on Saturday.

The Iran-aligned Houthis have stepped up cross-border drone and missile attacks on Saudi cities recently, mostly targeting the southern part of the country. The coalition says it intercepts most attacks.

The coalition has been fighting the Iran-aligned group in Yemen since 2015.
