Saudi airport ,airbase in Asir targeted by Yemenis
Spokesman for the Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said that a number of Qasef-2K drones targeted the Abha Airport and the King Khalid Airbase in Saudi Arabia’s Asir region.
The strike on the airport hit its control tower, said the spokesman, which led to halt all flights in/out of the airport. The attack on King Khalid Airbase also targeted its control tower, he added.
“We assure Saudi regime that our attacks will not stop as long as their aggression continues,” Brigadier Sare’e concluded.
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.
