In the late hours of August 29, Najran Regional Airport in southern Saudi Arabia was attacked by several Qasef-2K suicide unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs), which had been launched by the Houthis.
“The air force operation targeted warplanes shelters [in Najran International Airport] which resulted in the suspension of aerial aviation in the airport,” Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Houthis, announced.
The Yemeni group’s spokesman added that the attack was yet another response to the Saudi-led coalition’s airstrikes and siege on Yemen.
Najran is one of the biggest airports in Saudi Arabia’s southern region. Earlier today, the Houthis attacked another big airport in Abha with a cruise missile dubbed Quds-1.
These repeated attacks by the Houthis have disturbed aviation over southern Saudi Arabia. The coalition improved its defensive measures. However, it is yet to fully secure Saudi airspace.
