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.

SANA’A -Yemeni army forces and fighters from allied Popular Committees have launched a string of airstrikes at Saudi military positions in the kingdom’s Southern regions, in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s deadly military campaign against their country.

Spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e stated on Tuesday evening that Yemeni troops and their allies had carried out aerial assaults against designated targets at Jizan Airport and Abha International Airport in Saudi Arabia’s Southwestern province of Asir, using a squadron of domestically-manufactured Qasef-2K combat drones, Yemeni News reported.

Sare’e further noted that the attacks led to the suspension of flights at the airports.

“The attacks on Abha and Jizan airports are in response to the crimes of Saudi-led aggressors and the ongoing siege on Yemen, which has now entered its fifth year,” the top Yemeni military official added.

Saree then called on civilians and businesses to stay away from Saudi airports and military sites, stating that they are legitimate targets as long as the Saudi-led military aggression and the blockade of Yemen continues.
