Injuries in drone attack at Saudia’s Abha Airport


RIYADH: A suspected drone attack at Abha Airport of Saudi Arabia caused twelve people injured including travelers and workers of various nationalities on Thursday.

Air traffic operations returned to normal after standard safety procedures were carried out, the coalition said.

The coalition has been fighting the Houthis since early 2015, after the group ousted Yemen’s internationally recognised government from power in the capital Sanaa.

The Houthi rebels often target Abha airport, which lies close to the Yemeni border in Saudi Arabia’s south, and other parts of the country with drones and missiles. 

Most are intercepted but there have been a few fatalities and several injuries.

The coalition regularly carries out airstrikes on what it says are Houthi military targets in Yemen.

The United Arab Emirates, a coalition member, twice in January said its forces destroyed a Houthi ballistic missile launch area in Yemen.

It followed an unprecedented drone and missile attacks on the UAE this year claimed by the Houthi rebels.
