Saudi King Khalid Airbase suffers heavy losses in Yemeni Qasef 2K Drones




Saudi activists said a huge series of explosions and a huge fire from which large columns of smoke clouds had risen from inside the King Khalid Air Base in Khamis Mushait, south of Saudi Arabia, following extensive operations carried out by the air force with a squadron of Qasef 2k drones targeting military sites inside the base.

The Yemeni army forces carried out large operations on Monday on King Khaled Military Airbase in Khamis Mushait in Asir with a number of Qasef 2K drones.

The Spokesman of the Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said that Qasef 2K drone accurately hit weapons storage, stoking aircrafts and other military sites, pointing out that the operation also led to a large fire in the arms storage, causing a great deal of confusion and panic.

He stressed that drones and missile operations will continue, and will expand the circle of targeting in a manner that is not expected by the Saudi regime as long as continued in its war, siege and contempt.

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.
