Houthi Suicide Drones Attack Abha Airport In Southern Saudi Arabia

Illustrative image, source: the Houthis media wing

Late on August 8, the Houthis launched two Qasef-2K suicide unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at Abha International Airport in southern Saudi Arabia.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Yemeni group, said that one of the UAVs struck the airport’s control tower, while the other hit what he described as a “sensitive military target.”

“Both operations disrupted aerial aviation at Abha airport,” the spokesman added.

From its side, the Saudi-led coalition announced that its air-defense systems intercepted and shot down two hostile UAVs, which were heading towards the Kingdom’s southern provinces of Jizan and ‘Asir.

A spokesman for the coalition, Col. Turki al-Malki, claimed that the downed UAVs were launched from the Houthi-held province of ‘Amran and the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.

This coordinated attack on Abha International Airport is an example of how the Houthis are working to intensify their strikes on Saudi Arabia’s southern region.

    If these drones fly close to earth surface then these drones no body can intercept and would be a lethal weapons.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    What is even for ominous for the Saudi shitheads is their totally vulnerable and untenable position on the ground in central and northern Yemen, where the AnsarAllah have encircled them into penny pockets after the Emirati arseholes fled and the Sudanese mercenaries are totally demoralized and not fighting after suffering horrendous losses. The Saudi scum have had to empty their jails and Wahhabi madrassas to send totally untrained cannon fodder to die in the bleak moonscape of Yemen. The Saudi shitheads have no officers leading this rabble as daily footage of ragged Saudi scum surrendering to the AnsarAllah shows. The Saudis are afraid to use air power now due to growing AnsarAllah air defence capability and the targeting of Saudi forward airbases by drones and increasingly accurate missiles. The Saudis are really fucked in Yemen and the fat ugly pimp MBS would have been hung in any other country for leading such a disaster.

      I wish Emiratis get some too. Disruption of touristic season.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        The EmiRATis are mere pimps, they are even bigger cowards than Saudi scum. They saw the handwriting on the wall and fled and are now kissing Iranian arse as they know that a single missile at Dubai airport will end their glass and sand shithole. The missile travel distance from the forward solid fuel IRGC missile base at Abu Musa and Sirri islands is less than 3 minutes to strike Dubai or anywhere in UAE pimpdom.

      I am so happy the war has turned in favor of houthis :)))
