Yemen's Ansarullah resistance movement launched a retaliatory drone attack against the Abha International Airport in the southwest of Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi-led coalition, which has launched a deadly war against the Yemeni nation since 2015, confirmed the Sunday drone attack, claiming it has managed to intercept and destroy the “explosive-laden drone”.

Saudi state news agency [SPA] quoted Coalition of Aggression against Yemen spokesman Turki al-Malki as saying that “as a result of intercepting the drone, some splinters fell on the airport, causing no injuries or damage.”

Last month, the Ansarullah attacked a large oil facility in an industrial complex south of the Saudi Arabian city of Jizan as part of an overnight operation.

At that time, the Coalition claimed it had intercepted and destroyed four missiles and six bomb-laden drones launched by the Ansarullah towards the kingdom.

The missiles and drones had been launched from Yemen's capital Sana’a and directed at targets deep into the Saudi territory in retaliation for the Coalition's five-year aggression.

Saudi Arabia waged the devastating military aggression against its southern neighbor in March 2015 in collaboration with a number of its allied states.

The United Nations refers to the situation in Yemen as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than half of hospitals and clinics destroyed or closed.
