Arab Coalition: Houthi terror attack targets Saudi Arabia’s Abha airport
The Saudi-led Arab coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen announced on Wednesday that the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen had carried out a terrorist attack targeting Saudi Arabia’s Abha International Airport.
Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said that a Houthi projectile struck the facility’s arrival area, leaving 26 civilians injured.
He stated that the injured are of different nationalities, among them three women who are Yemeni, Saudi and Indian, and two Saudi children. All the injured have been treated and left the hospital.
The arrivals hall was also damaged.
Al-Maliki said that security forces are working to determine the type of projectile used in the terrorist attack.
He stated that the attack is a war crime, and “proves that the Houthi militia has obtained advanced weapons from Iran”.
Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation said that Abha airport traffic is operating as normal.
Al Maliki concluded by saying that coalition forces will take urgent and timely measures to deter the militias from carrying out further attacks.
