The Yemeni Air Force of the Yemeni army forces carried out attacks with drones, Qasef-2K, on Saudi Abha and Jizan Airports. Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman stated that the operation in Saudi Jizan Airport targeted air traffic control for Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US,’s jet fighters.
Brigadier Sare’e said that both operations in Saudi Jizan and Abha airports accurately destroyed targets, both airports are out of service, confirming that the airports, military sites and vital facilities of the countries of the coalition have become insecure.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
