Saudi airports hit repeatedly by Yemenis
Yemeni Air Force, early Tuesday, carried out broad attacks targeting a hangar for military warplanes on Abha airport in southwestern Asir province, Saudi Arabia, the Yemeni army forces’ spokesman said.
He stated that the offensives on Saudi Abha Airport led to a disruption in the air navigation system, adding that” Saudi regime will not be able to resume air operations due to continued targeting of its airports,” .
Air monitoring centers , for their part, confirmed that a flight from Dammam to Abha was forced to change its destination to Jeddah International Airport following the air attack on the airport.
The official Spokesman for the coalition, Turki al-Maliki admitted the capabilities of the Yemeni army forces that he described as qualitative and advanced.
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.
