The Houthi group announced this evening, Saturday, the targeting of Jizan and Abha airports and the Khamis Mushait base in southern Saudi Arabia, while the Saudi-Emirati coalition said that it had intercepted an explosive Houthi march.
In a brief statement, the group’s military spokesman, Yahya Saree, said that the group’s air force launched 3 attacks with 3 “Qasef 2k” drones, targeting Jizan and Abha airports and the Khamis Mushait base in southern Saudi Arabia.
He added that these attacks come in response to “the crimes of aggression and its continued siege on the Yemeni people,” without elaborating on other details.
Later, the spokesman for the Saudi-Emirati coalition, Colonel Turki Al-Maliki, said that the coalition forces were able, on Saturday evening, to intercept and destroy an explosive UAV.
He added that the plane was launched by the Houthi militia in a systematic and deliberate manner to target civilian objects and civilians in the southern Saudi region, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.
This comes the day after the coalition announced – in two successive statements – the destruction of two Houthi drones that targeted residential neighborhoods in southern Saudi Arabia.
The Houthis frequently fire ballistic missiles, missiles, and drones at Saudi areas, some of which have caused human and material losses.
The group says that these attacks come in response to the ongoing coalition raids against it in separate areas of Yemen.
Since March 2015, a Saudi-led military coalition has supported forces loyal to the Yemeni government against the Iranian-backed Houthis, who control several Yemeni governorates, including the capital, Sanaa.
