Cairo, September 8
Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group mentioned it aimed a variety of drones at Saudi Arabia’s Abha International Airport early on Tuesday and put it out of motion for a number of hours.
There was no rapid affirmation of the incident from Saudi authorities.
Abha airport, close to Saudi Arabia’s south-west border with Yemen, has been an everyday goal for Houthi drones and missiles over the previous two years. Many have been intercepted, however some have hit, inflicting deaths and accidents.
Houthi army spokesman Yahya Sarea mentioned on Twitter the assault with Samad three drones came about at daybreak.
Yemen has been mired in battle since a Saudi-led coalition intervened in March 2015 to revive the Yemeni authorities ousted from energy within the capital Sanaa by Houthi forces in late 2014.
The Houthis say they’re preventing a corrupt system.
Cross-border assaults by Houthi forces have escalated since late May when a truce prompted by the coronavirus pandemic expired. In late June, missiles reached the Saudi capital Riyadh.
