Saudi Arabia: Suspected Houthi Drone Attack

Monday 24 June 2019

RIYADH (Saudi TV 1 via Ruptly) — The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said that at least one person was killed and several injured in a suspected Houthi drone attack on Abha civilian airport on Sunday. Footage shows damaged windows and cars as the strike was reported to have hit the parking.

A Saudi state-run news agency reported that a Syrian national was killed in the strike, while Houthi-run Al-Masriyah TV claimed that a separate drone attack also targeted an airport in Jizan.

According to the Saudi-led coalition, the same airport was targeted with a missile on June 12, injuring 26 people. The Houthis stepped up missile and drone attacks in Saudi Arabia in the past weeks with the growing tension in the Persian Gulf.
