On January 30, Saudi Arabia announced that its air-defense system had intercepted an armed drone of the Houthis (formally known as Ansar Allah) that was flying in Yemeni airspace. The drone was intercepted, Riyadh claimed, because it was a threat to Saudi Arabia and its forces.

“Joint Coalition forces intercepted and destroyed this evening (Saturday) a bomb-laden UAV in Yemeni airspace, which was launched by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia toward the Kingdom to deliberately and systematically target civilians and civilian objects.”

A day later, on January 31, pro-Saudi sources claimed that another drone was intercepted over the south of Saudi Arabia.

A brief overview of the recent developments in Yemen:

  • The Liaison and Coordination Officers’ Operations Room (loyal to Ansar Allah) reported 198 ceasefire violations in al-Hudaydah during the past 24 hours;
  • On January 31, Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted 2 airstrikes on the Madghal area;
  • On January 31, Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted 2 airstrikes on the Sarwah area;
  • On January 31, the Saudi-led coalition claimed that it shot down a drone over the south of Saudi Arabia;
  • On January 31, Aidarus al-Zoubaidi, head of South of Yemen Transition Council, with a committee of Southerners arrived in Moscow to meet with Russian representatives.
