BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The Houthi forces, also known as the Ansarallah Movement, announced that it had targeted the Jizan Airport and King Khalid Airbase in the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait on Sunday morning.
The spokesman for the Houthi-aligned Yemeni armed forces,, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, tweeted on Sunday morning that two Qasef-2K drones struck the two airports in the southern region of the Gulf Kingdom.
“The air force managed to target, by the grace of God, the airfields of warplanes at Jizan Airport and King Khalid Air Base in Khamis Mushait on Sunday morning with two Qasef 2K drones, and the hit was accurate,” Saree tweeted.
“This targeting comes in response to the continuing aggression and siege on our dear country,” he would add.
