Houthis Announce New Attacks On King Khalid Air Base, Abha Airport In Southern Saudi Arabia

The Houthis (Ansar Allah) announced on February 12 that they had carried out new attacks on King Khalid Air Base and Abha International Airport in the southern Saudi province of ‘Asir.

In a statement, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Houthis, said that three Qasef-2K suicide drones targeted the King Khalid Air Base and Abha International Airport over the last few hours.

The Qasef-2k is an upgraded variant of the Qasef-1 drone, which is a copy of the Iranian Ababil-2. The suicide drone is armed with a heavy high-explosive fragmentation, HE-FRAG, warhead that explodes 20 m above the target.

“The attacks were carried out in response to the aggressor’s [Saudi-led coalition] escalation and its complete siege on our country [Yemen],” the spokesman said.

The Saudi-led coalition has not commented on the Houthis’ announcement, yet. In most cases, this means that the attacks were successful.

On February 10, the Houthis targeted Abha International Airport with four drones. At least two of the drones hit the airport. An airliner was damaged. On February 11, the Yemeni group fired a ballistic missile at King Khalid Air Base. The missile was allegedly intercepted.

The Houthis announced their new attacks on Saudi Arabia only minutes after a US decision to end their designation as a terrorist organization.

The terrorist designation of the Houthis, which was ordered by former President Donald Trump, was revoked by the State Department. Nevertheless, the group’s leaders, Abdul Malik al-Houthi, Abd al-Khaliq Badr al-Din al-Houthi, and Abdullah Yahya al-Hakim, were kept under sanctions.

Despite the recent military escalation and political pressure from the US, Saudi Arabia has not yet taken any steps to end its war on Yemen.

Houthis bombing Saudi Wahhabia on a daily basis like they used to, while making significant progress on the fronts.
Good reminder of what humanity is capable of doing when it fights together for a cause.

Go AnsarAllah!

Frankly, the Iranians have captured so many Zionist drones in Syria and Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict that they have reversed engineered and upgraded them and the technology has now been passed on to the whole Axis of Resistance. Hezbollah will soon be hitting Zionist cowards with their own weapons. How about a mega home goal for the Zionist fools.

These drones have been shout down before it even exited the Yemeni border confirmed by the Coalition. The US will list the Houthis terrorist elements again. After saying we will keep the leadership under terror list and the main faction will return into terror list again. Either way they will get crushed delisted or listed as long as Saudi Arabia recognizes them as terrorist elements

Saudis brag. if they did so what u’re saying, why don’t they brag? calculus from elementary school first grade. well they don’t, so brave warriors from Yemen did their job after all.

What is their to brag about their centcom have shout down dozens they just confirmed hours ago that they indeed shout down drones coming from Yemen hitted towards them. The only thing the Houthis are achieving here is to raise a stiff resistance against them nothing more or less to achieve here

Yea, saudis enjoy some great military masochism. Houthis, whip the saudis to death.

The Ansarallah have caused serious damage at the “King Khalid” airbase, with several F-15 and a C-130 knocked out.

Saudi imbeciles made the mother of follies by invading Yemen, an unforgiving land of ferocious warriors.

Frank

Frankly, Yemen is the Arabia Felix graveyard of Empires dating back to the queen of Sheba.
