The Yemeni army and Popular Committees have on Friday launched a second aerial attack on Abha International Airport in Asir region, southwestern Saudi Arabia, a military official told Saba News Agency. This attack marks the second time in less than a week that Abha airport has been targeted by a Yemeni retaliatory strike.
The Air Force launched drone strikes, using several number of Qasif-K2 combat drones, targeting the radar system of Abha Airport, which hit its target with high accuracy. This attack comes less than two days after the same spot was hit by a cruise missile.
On Wednesday, Yemen’s Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e has the revealed details of the Yemeni missile attack that caused significant damage to Abha International Airport in Asir region on Wednesday. The Missile Forces launched a winged cruise missile, which hit its target with high accuracy.
Last Sunday, the Yemeni air forces also launched aerial attacks on the Jizan airport, targeting the Saudi-led coalition unmanned aerial vehicles’ stations.
“The aerial attacks come after the countries of aggression turned the Jizan airport into a military base for waging the aggression against Yemen,” Yahya Sare’e added.
The attack on the Jizan airport is the second of its kind in just about two weeks. On May 26, the Yemeni army announced that it had attacked a hangar of warplanes in the same airport, also using Qasif-K2 attack drones.
