On Thursday, reports said the Yemeni army forces had launched a drone attack on the Abha airport in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Asir region.
The Yemeni unmanned combat aerial vehicle was of Qasef-1 (Striker-1) type.
The strike was conducted in response to the US-backed Saudi-led coalition’s deadly military campaign on Yemen.
