Houthi forces from Yemen attacked a number of airports in Saudi Arabia with drones, the Houthis’ military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yahya Saree said on Monday.
Targets included the King Khalid Air Base and two civilian airports, the Abha International Airport and Najran Regional Airport, the Houthi spokesman said. All are located in the Kingdom’s southwest near the border with Yemen.
He said the attacks were in response to the “crimes” committed by the Saudi-led coalition, “referring to 21 Saudi airstrikes that have hit Yemen over the past 48 hours,” Iran-based PressTV reports.
PressTV says that the Houthis used domestically-developed Qasef-2K (Striker-2K) drones in the attacks.
The Houthis are supported by Iran.
Late last month, Saudi Arabia reported that the Houthis hit Abha airport with a missile, killing a Syrian resident and wounding seven civilians.
