Saudi Arabia’s King Khaled Airport has been hit by a series of drone strikes. Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah Movement has carried out three drone strikes in just 24 hours, parstoday reported, citing the source of Brigadier General Yahya Saree, a spokesman for Yemen’s military.
General Saree said the drone strikes were in response to the Saudi-led coalition’s ongoing barbaric aggression on Yemen and its blockade. “Fighters from the Houthi Movement and the Yemeni military attacked key targets at King Khalid Air Base with their own technology.”
He added that the Yemeni drone successfully hit the targets of the airbase. Two drones were used in the attack.
Earlier, five Yemeni Qasef-2K drones carried out a successful attack on the base. Earlier on Friday, Yemeni troops attacked King Khalid International Airport with three drones.
There have also been attacks on Abha International Airport in Asir province.
