Saudi air defenses shoot down 5 drones fired by Houthi militia toward Abha airport
Saudi Arabia’s air defense forces managed to intercept and gun down five drones fired by Houthi coup militia on Friday toward Abha’s International Airport and the city of Khamis Mushayt southern the Kingdom.
Spokesman of Arab Coalition Col. Turki Al-Maliki said in a statement released by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) that “Air traffic and airspace at Abha International Airport are operating normally, and there is no delay in flights and passenger traffic.”
“The Houthi terrorist militia is trying to target civilian facilities in desperate and repeated attempts, without achieving any of their irresponsible and hostile objectives,” Col. Al-Maliki said.
“These drones were exposed and dropped. We stress on our legitimate right to take appropriate deterrence measures, with such hostile acts and in conformity with international humanitarian law and its customary rules,” he confirmed.
