Yemen rebels claim attack on Saudi airbase

Written by The Frontier Post

SANAA (AA): Yemen’s Houthi rebels on Sunday claimed two drone attacks on a Saudi airbase in southern Saudi Arabia.

Rebel spokesman Yahya Sarei said the attacks targeted King Khalid Airbase and Jazan Airport in the city of Khamis Mushait.

The spokesman said the attacks were in retaliation to the Saudi-led coalition’s attacks in Yemen.

There has been no comment from the Saudi-led coalition on the Houthi claim.

Iran-aligned Houthi rebels have recently stepped up their rocket and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia.

Yemen has been beset by violence and chaos since 2014, when Houthi rebels overran much of the country.
