The Saudi Press Agency, SPA, quoted Colonel Turki Al Maliki, Official Spokesman for the Coalition, as saying that in early hours of Tuesday, a terrorist attack was carried out by the Houthi militia on Abha International Airport through which thousands of civilian passengers of citizens and residents of different nationalities pass daily.
He said among the nine civilians injured in the drone attack are eight Saudis and one Indian adding that all were stable. Al Maliki added that the Houthi terrorist militia continues its immoral practices by targeting civilians and civilian objects protected under international humanitarian law and its customary rules.
The Houthi militia claimed full responsibility for the attack through its media. Al Maliki said that the continuation of such acts of terrorism and high-quality capabilities proves the Iranian regime’s involvement in supporting the Houthi terrorist militias.
