Saudi forces intercept another drone attack targeting Abha airport

This is the third armed drone attack targeting Abha airport in recent days

Saudi forces on Tuesday intercepted and destroyed another armed drone fired by the Houthis from Yemen towards the Abha International Airport, state TV station media Ekhbariya TV reported.

The attack did not cause any casualties, but shrapnel from the incident was reportedly found in the airport’s vicinity.

Operations at the airport are continuing as normal, Ekhbariya TV stated.

This is the third armed drone attack targeting Abha airport in recent days.

While Saudi forces intercepted one attack on Saturday, another last Wednesday resulted in a civilian plane catching fire, although there were no reports of any injuries.

“We are taking the necessary measures to protect civilians from the threats of the Houthis,” Brigadier general Turki Al-Malki, spokesperson of the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen, said at the time.
