Yemen: Drone Operations Target Saudi Airport, Air Base
By Staff- Agencies
Yemen’s army and popular committees have carried out drone attacks on military targets in Saudi Arabia in retaliation for the kingdom’s aggression against their country.
The spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said three drones of the Qasef-2K type hit strategic military targets at the Abha International Airport and King Khalid Air Base in southwestern Saudi Arabia at different times on Friday. The strikes were “accurate,” he said.
Saree noted that the attacks were conducted in response to the continued Saudi aggression against Yemen.
King Khalid Air Base had been targeted in a missile attack launched by the Yemeni forces on Thursday.
A day earlier, Yemeni forces had carried out drone strikes on the airfields at the Abha International Airport.
A member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council has said that Saudi airports are used for military purposes in the war on Yemen.
Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched the brutal war against Yemen in March 2015.
