Yemeni Air Force launches a drone attack on Jizan Airport
Yemeni Air Force, on Wednesday, carried out a drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s Jizan airport.
The spokesman of the Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said that the Air Force carried out this morning a broad operation hitting important military sites at the airport using Qasif-K2 combat drones.
“The drone strikes had accurately hit the targets and led to the disruption of air traffic at the airport,” he added.
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.
