Yemen’s Houthis fire cruise missile at Abha Airport in Saudi Arabia
Yemen’s Houthi movement carried out an attack on Abha Airport in Saudi Arabia with a cruise missile, the group’s Almasira TV reported early on Wednesday.
The latest attack, which is yet to be confirmed by the Saudis, comes a day after Riyadh said it intercepted two drones fired by the Iran-aligned group, which controls a large part of Yemen, including the capital Sanaa.
Official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said that Saudi air defence forces on Monday intercepted two drones that targeted Khamis Mushait in the kingdom’s south and caused no damage or casualties.
The rebels said they had targeted the King Khalid airbase near Khamis Mushait.
The attacks come as the Saudi-Emirati coalition has intensified air raids on Houthi positions in the northern Yemeni province of Hajjah.
