Photos: Inside Saudi airport after Houthi attack, 26 injured

Arab and Gulf countries have strongly condemned the attack.

Saudi Arabia has released exclusive photos from the Houthi attack – earlier on Wednesday – on Abha International Airport.

Earlier, Colonel Turki Almalki, the official spokesperson of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, said that at 2:21am Wednesday morning, a hostile projectile fired by Houthi militia hit the arrivals hall at Abha airport in Asir Province in southwestern Saudi Arabia, through which thousands of civilian passengers of different nationalities pass daily.

A total of 26 civilian passengers of different nationalities were injured by the projectile, including three women (Yemeni, Indian, Saudi) and two Saudi children, Colonel Almalki said, citing the tally up to the time of preparation of this statement.




Eight cases were transferred to hospital for treatment for moderate injuries, while 18 were treated at the site for minor injuries. There was also some physical damage to the airport lounge.

Arab and Gulf countries have condemned the attack, including UAE.
