A new drone attack by the Houthis has knocked Abha International Airport in southern Saudi Arabia out of service, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Houthis, claimed in a statement release in the late hours of July 25.

According to the spokesman, several Qasef-2K suicide unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) targeted warplanes’ shelters and other military targets in the airport in response to recent Saudi airstrikes on Yemen.

“Our operations will continue as long as the aggression and the siege are ongoing … We repeat our calls to the civilians and companies to stay away from airports and military sites as they have become legitimate targets for us,” Brig. Gen. Sari said in the statement.

The Saudi-led coalition has not commented on the Houthis’ claims, so far. However, several Arabian outlets confirmed that Abha International Airport was placed out of service as a result of the drone attack.

This was the second drone attack by the Houthis in the last 24 hours. The first attack targeted King Khalid airbase in the southern Saudi province of ‘Asir. The Saudi-led coalition claimed that the attack was a failure.

Since last June, the Houthis have stepped up their attacks on key targets in southern Arabia. Drones, ballistic missiles and even cruise missiles were successfully used by the Yemeni group.

Houthis: doing what the US refuses to do because Zionists.


nah it’s the vietnam war syndrome all over again – big and rich country decides to crush the poor minion next door and to it’s surprise the minion has got teeth and fights back and the rich one, like in saudi arabia, finds it is a losing proposition but can’t do much about it except pour more money into the losing proposition in order to save face. mohammed bin salman (of fake leonardo da vinci 450m$ purchase) might actually have his head lopped off when his siblings and cousins realize that his squandered the family fortune on something like yemen.

Zionism = EVIL

Bought a map yet kiddo? was Vietnam north-south or east west :)

You bet! Main building and radar installations. All gone. In a big puff.

Zionism = EVIL

They did, the Saudi vermin have old F-15 that were supplied in a stripped down export version at 3 times the normal cost for any NATO puppet. The Saudis have lost 8 so far along with Bahraini, Moroccan and Jordanian F-16. The wear and tear on these old planes flying from great distances due to fear of Ansarallah drones is causing havoc and their Americunt lardass masters are flying most of the bombing sorties on Yemen’s civilians.

Brother Ma

Αmericunt pilots flying bomb sorties of saud planes in yemen? How do you know? Just media stories or do you have sources not in the public eye. Ie friends in intelligence ,pilot friends who have americunt friends who fly the sorties ?

Zionism = EVIL

Try even googling US support for Saudi war on Yemen.



Saudi Arabia shall be eliminated from the face of earth

Zionism = EVIL

Saudi Arabia like the Zionist entity is a western creation and propped up by global Jew scum and NATO. There are strong undercurrents through out imploding and sick Saudi Wahhabi rotting society, same happening in UAE where even “royal” women are fleeing and seeking asylum in Europe and Canada. The Saudi cowards are having a hard time recruiting mercenaries for their quagmire in Yemen and will have to start conscription soon if they don’t end the MBS arseholes disaster. Saudi economy is one trick pony and the cost of the war and growing Yemeni resistance is causing mega problems, so much so that the Saudi losers had to bring in thousands of Americunt lardass morons to defend them. Saudis will implode, no question about that.

Zionism = EVIL

The Saudi scum have lost a few F-15 in hangers, now the cowards and their lardass US masters will have to fly all the way from Tabuk to bomb the women and children of Yemen, even those bases will be hit soon.

How close is this to a military airport, the Saudi pilots have to be coming from somewhere nearby.

All USA regimes atrocities were supported by black people like Rice family,Powel and other black illegal immigrants to secure general works for sweeping and cleaning streets and toilets of whites. That evil racists tactics were exposed by four Professional ladies Ullah Omar,Ocasio Cotez,Tlaip and Peres.Trump started nice but after being in doctrine by CIA and Pentagon he start arrogant roque and start imposing one man decision rule.Trump started recognizing none whites as election toys and weapons testing live targets.After the decision to end partnership with El Chapo and ceasing his 30 plus billions Trump insisted building a wall to starve poor Mexicans who’s general income was through selling drugs to USA medical centers and laboratories. Oil and gas factories in Saudi Arabia are depleting now new tactic is to take over Libya oil and gas, Iraq oil and gas through Kurds,Syria Omar oil fields and pushing out Hisbollah and Iran from T1 to T4 gas fields with Russian acknowledgement and Golan heights oil fields through claiming it is official Israel territory.

Managed to abolished Soviet Union. Taking and splitting Yogoslawia to encroach on Siberia.USA final Bush is to destroy Iran and own it’s all Persian wealth.Trump will continue with his arrogants and racism to shut up real fighters against white economic capitalism.It is written in the bible that first the evil rubbish will come and then the real evil anti christ Obama.Trump is making ww3 possible and the withdrawal of Holy Spirit from earth.
