Yemeni drone hits Saudi King Khalid Air Base
The Air Force waged large-scale offensive operations with Qasef 2K drones on vital targets at King Khalid Air Base in Khamis Mushayt, Asir on Wednesday night.
The spokesman of the armed forces, Brigadier Yahya Sari, said that rapid operations of the Air Force targeted the warplanes and areas of warplanes’ loading and sensitive sites in the King Khalid Air Base, stressing that the operations hit their targets with high accuracy.
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.
