TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Drones operated by Yemen’s army launched a fresh attack on airports south of Saudi Arabia, targeting facilities and causing a suspension of the air traffic system.
The attacks launched by Qassif K2 drones targeted planes and military equipment in airports in Jizan and Abha, al-Massirah TV reported.
The news network cited a spokesman of Yemeni armed forces as saying that the attacks had been carried out with high degree of precision and caused the air navigation system in the facilities to disrupt.
Brigadier Yahya Saree said that the attacks were a response to Saudi Arabia’s relentless bombardment of civilians in Yemen, a country that has suffered badly as a result of the war for the past three years.
Saree said Saudi airports servicing fighter jets and helicopters that are used in attacks against Yemen will continue to remain a “legitimate target” of drone attacks by Yemen’s army.
The Saturday attacks came a day after Saudi jets targeted two residential houses in the southwestern province of Taiz, killing eight members of a family.
