Saudi Intercepts 5 Houthi Drones In Second Attack On Airport

Saudi forces on Friday intercepted five drones launched by Iran-aligned Yemeni rebels, a Riyadh-led military coalition said, in a second assault on an airport in the kingdom’s southwest in two days.

This was the second assault targeting the airport in the Kingdom’s southwest in two days. The missile on Wednesday left 26 civilians wounded at the Abha airport. The nearby city of Khamis Mushyat was also targeted, the Coalition said in a statement.

“The royal Saudi air defence force and air force successfully intercepted and destroyed five unmanned drone aircraft launched by Houthi militia towards Abha international airport and Khamis Mushyat,” the coalition statement said without reporting any casualties.

The airport was operating normally with no flights disrupted, the statement added.
