Yemen’s Houthi militia has claimed responsibility for a bomb-laden drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s Abha airport.
“The attack accurately hit a military object at the airport,” Houthi military spokesman Yehya Saria said in a statement reported by Houthi-run al-Maseera TV on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition said the Houthi militias opted for a massive escalation targeting civilian airports in Saudi Arabia, Xinhua news agency reported.
“We give citizens in Sanaa 72 hours to clear civilian sites used by Houthi militias militarily,” the coalition said in a statement reported by Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV.
Iran-backed Yemeni Houthi militias have recently intensified cross-border ballistic missile and drone strikes against Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
In January, Houthi militias lost several strategic districts in the oil-rich provinces of Shabwa and Marib in central Yemen.
