The Yemeni armed forces have launched fresh retaliatory attacks on Abha airports in southern Saudi Arabia, leaving multiple casualties.
Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV quoted its own correspondent as saying that the Yemeni drone attack on Abha Airport has left one killed and eight people wounded.
Earlier, Yemen’s Houthi movement said they had targeted Abha and Jizan airports in southern Saudi Arabia with drone attacks, the group’s Al-Masirah TV said.
The spokesman for the Yemeni armed forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said the country’s air force has carried out “large-scale” attacks with K2 drones against Jizan and Abha airports.
The first operation targeted the airfields and important military targets at Jizan airport. The second operation targeted Abha airport and the two operations hit their targets with high accuracy, he said.
“Our operations are continuing and will be more painful to the enemy in the coming days if they continue to escalate.”
