SANAA, Yemen, May 23 (NNN-SABA) – Yemen’s Houthi rebels said, they launched a new drone attack on Wednesday, on “Saudi military aircraft hangars” at Najran airport, in the Saudi Arabia’s border city of Najran.
It was the second attack on the airport in less than 24 hours.
“The attack was carried out by bomb-laden Kasif-K2 drone and targeted the Saudi military aircraft hangars at Najran airport,” it said.
On Tuesday, Saudi-led coalition’s spokesman, Turkie al-Maleki said, a vital civilian facility in Najran was targeted with a drone carrying explosives. The Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s attack and said, they targeted an arms depot at Najran airport and caused fire to break out in the facility.
The attacks on Najran airport came, after Saudi forces intercepted “ballistic missiles” above the Saudi western cities of Jeddah and Taif on Monday.
Houthis have been targeting Saudi border cities since the beginning of the war in Yemen.
Last week, Houthi drone attacks damaged two Saudi Aramco’s oil pump stations and caused limited fire, according to Al Arabiya television.– NNN-SABA
