Saudi-led Coalition Says It Destroyed Houthi Drone Launch Site After Attack On Saudi Arabia’s Abha Airport

Illustrative image.

Late on October 6, a suicide drone launched from Yemen, allegedly by the Houthis (Ansar Allah), attacked Abha International Airport in the southern Saudi province of ‘Asir.

In a statement released by the Saudi Press Agency, the Saudi-led coalition claimed that the drone was successfully intercepted. The coalition said that four of the airport’s workers were wounded by shrapnel from the interception.

“The Houthi attempt to target civilians at Abha’s civilian airport constitutes a war crime,” the statement reads.

Many sources reported that the workers were in fact wounded because the drone was not intercepted and managed to impact its target in Abha International Airport.

The Houthis, who keep some of their attacks on Saudi Arabia a secret, have not commented on the coalition’s claims, yet.

Less than an hour after the attack, the Saudi-led coalition announced that it had struck and destroyed a drone launch site of the Houthis in the northern Yemeni province of Saada, the heartland of the Yemeni group. The coalition claimed that the fighters who launched the drone attack on Abha were killed.

The Houthis stepped up their missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia recently in what appears to be an attempt to take advantage of the recent withdrawal of US air-defense systems from the Kingdom.

Sure it did.

The coalition said that four of the airport’s workers were wounded by shrapnel from the interception.
The only problem is, you intercepted it with your faces!

Saudi-led coalition announced that it had struck and destroyed a drone launch site of the Houthis in the northern Yemeni province of Saada.

If the world worked according to your laughable lies, the Houthis would owe something to existence.

But commenters here on SF say that the Houthis don’t target civilians.

Ridiculous, the saudis accusing another nation of “war crimes”. Does trying to starve an entire nation to death qualify as a war crime?

Assad and the Saudis do the same tactics on that one. For sure there are many things wrong with Arabs but we need to support them in order to counter Turkey and Iran.
