UAE forces capture Iranian drone loaded with explosives in Yemen

Al-Jubeir condemned the continued ballistic missile attacks on Saudi Arabian cities and considered such attacks in breach of global humanitarian law.

"Houthis in Yemen fired a total of 119 ballistic missiles targeting Saudi Arabia so far, warning of a "painful" military response if the militants mounted any new attacks", the publication said quoting Colonel Turki al-Maliki, an Arab coalition spokesman.

The air force intercepted the missiles before they managed to hit their targets but some remains landed on residential areas, Maliki added.

On Monday, the Iran-back Houthi militia fire a new missile towards the southern Najran province, which was intercepted by Saudi air defence, the latest in a series of similar incidents. Saudi authorities say over the past three years 90 ballistic missiles have been fired at the kingdom by the rebels.

Col Al Malki added that the airport in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, which is still under rebel control, was being used as a military base to orchestrate the drone strike.

Cardinals-Cubs game Wednesday postponed due to winter weather
Rizzo advocated for a shorter season in an interview with ESPN 1000 earlier Tuesday, but said it was just his opinion. He's so serious about this that the Chicago Cubs first baseman said he would take less money to do so.

On Oct. 1, 2017, the Houthis said they fired a surface-to-air missile and shot down a US -made General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper drone in the north of Sanaa.

Tehran has repeatedly denied arming the rebels, which would violate a United Nations weapons embargo slapped on Yemen in 2015.

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has said that the success of any political solution in Yemen depends on the Houthi militias.

The war in Yemen has been described by the United Nations as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 75 percent of the population, or about 22 million people, in need of aid, while seven million are on the brink of starvation.
