Saudi air forces intercepted and destroyed another drone launched by the Houthis in Yemen targeting the Abha airport on Saturday.

“We are dealing with the sources of threat to protect civilians and civilian objects from hostile attacks,” the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said on Twitter.

The attack was condemned by the Arab Parliament, which stated that it “confirms the terrorist nature of the Houthi militia, which continues to commit war crimes by targeting civilians and civilian facilities and threatening the lives of travellers, citizens, residents, and others from different nationalities who use the airport”.

The Arab Parliament called on the international community to take urgent and immediate action to hold the Houthis accountable for their crimes.

It also reiterated its solidarity and full support for the kingdom in its measures to defend its land and preserve the security and safety of its citizens and residents.

Saudi has been facing several Houthi attacks in recent weeks, with the southern part of the country a primary target.

The Abha International Airport in particular has seen numerous drone attacks.

Last month, falling debris from a drone shattered the glass of some of the windows at the airport, injuring four workers.

On August 31, a drone attack on the airport injured eight people and damaged an Airbus 320 civilian aircraft.
