The Houthi rebels have launched another drone strike in Saudi Arabia. Xinhua and Arab News reported that the attack occurred on Sunday at the southwestern Abha International Airport. Saudi Arabia claims that they are capable of destroying drones.
The Houthis have repeatedly carried out drone strikes in Saudi Arabia to voice their opposition to the war being carried out by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen. The Saudi coalition has acknowledged Sunday’s attack. However, they claimed that they were capable of destroying a drone loaded with explosives.
Saudi Arabia’s state news agency SPA said the drone was dropped from the sky at Abha Airport and its debris fell at the airport. However, no casualties were reported.
Last month, Yemen’s Ansarullah movement and its allied forces carried out drone strikes on a major oil complex in Saudi Arabia’s southern province of Jizan. At the time, the Arab League claimed that it had loaded four missiles and six drones with explosives.
Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out a brutal offensive against Yemen since March 2015. The Houthis in Yemen have a strong resistance against this aggression. For almost a year now, the military fighters in Yemen and their allied forces have been carrying out missile strikes on various important airports and installations, ranging from various oil installations in Saudi Arabia.
