HRW: Houthis attack on Abha’s airport ‘apparent war crime’
Human Rights Watch ( HRW) has called the recent drone attack by the Iran-backed Houthi militia on Abha International Airport in Saudi Arabia an “apparent war crime”.
HRW urged the Houthi rebels to stop attacks on civilian infrastructure in Saudi Arabia.
Deputy Middle East director at HRW, Michael Page said that Saudi-led Arab coalition airstrikes in Yemen “never justify Houthi attacks on Saudi civilians,” according to a statement.
Twenty-six civilians were wounded in the Houthi missile strike on the airport on Wednesday.
