Houthis claim drone attack on Saudi airport

Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels say they carried out a drone attack on a Saudi airport that left an aircraft in flames Wednesday, saying the facility was used to launch attacks on Yemen.

“The UAV air force targeted the airfields of warplanes at Abha International Airport — which is used for military purposes to target the Yemeni people — with four drones,” Yahya Sarie, spokesman for the Houthis’ armed wing, says in a tweet.

“The strike was accurate, thanks to God.”
