Riyadh: Saudi Arabia’s air defense system thwarted a drone strike by Houthi rebels at Abha airport.
According to the International News Agency, Yemen’s Houthi rebels once again tried to attack Saudi Arabia’s Abha airport with an explosive-laden drone, to which the Saudi Air Force’s defense system responded immediately and defused the drone in mid-air. According to a statement issued by the Arab Coalition Forces, the Houthi rebels tried to target Abha airport with drones in which no casualties were reported but the defense forces will continue to take measures to protect the lives and property of the civilians.
It should be noted that Houthi rebels have made several attempts to target Abha airport in Saudi Arabia. Earlier, on February 10, a civilian plane was set on fire at Abha airport in an attack. There were also two attacks in November last year.
