Yemeni army targets Abha airport in Saudi Arabia

TEHRAN, Apr. 20 (MNA) – The Yemeni army has targeted 'Abha International Airport' in southern Saudi Arabia in a drone strike on Tuesday.

In a tweet on Tuesday, the Spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Saree said that the Army UAV unit targeted Abha International Airport in southern Saudi Arabia.

The operation targeted an important military location, he added, saying a “Qasef-2K” drone was used in the operation and the UAV hit the target accurately.

He noted that the operation was in response to airstrikes by the Saudi coalition and the continuation of the siege of Yemen.

Saree on Saturday announced a drone operation against King Khalid Airbase in Saudi Arabia.

The sensitive area was carefully targeted at King Khalid Airbase in the Khamis Mushait area with a Qasif K2 UAV, he added.

Yemen’s Air Force has stepped up the retaliatory attacks on Saudi Arabia in recent months, saying the strikes will continue as long as Riyadh carries on with its airstrikes and blockade.

The Saudi-led coalition has been bombing Yemen for nearly seven years, imposing a siege, starvation and lack of medical supplies on the Yemeni people, and continuing to kill women and children.

These attacks have led to the destruction of Yemen's infrastructure and the spread of poverty, unemployment and the spread of infectious diseases in this country.
