JIZAN – The Yemeni Air Force, on Wednesday, carried out a fresh drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s Jizan airport, the fourth such raid on the kingdom’s airports in the past few hours.
The spokesman of the Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said in a brief statement that the Air Force carried out this morning a broad operation targeted important military sites at the airport using Qasif-K2 combat drones.
“The drone strikes had accurately hit the targets and led to the disruption of air traffic at the airport,” he added.
He also noted that the attack came in response to the crimes committed by the US-Saudi aggression on Yemen and the military alliance’s continued siege on the country.
On Tuesday, the Yemeni Air Force carried out a similar drone attack on the Jizan airport and another two raids on King Khalid air base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Asir Province.
Brigadier Sare’e said on Tuesday evening that the drones struck hangars in Saudi Arabia’s Jizan airport with precision, noting that the structures were used to house unmanned aerial vehicles operated by the US-Saudi military aggression against Yemen.
Sare’e underlined that the operation led to the disruption of air traffic at the airport, reinterring that the drone strikes were in line with the legitimate response to the continued Saudi-led alliance’s crimes and aggression against Yemen, and its blockade of the conflict-ridden Arab country.
Later, Yemeni Air Force also targeted King Khalid Air Base near the southwestern Saudi city of Khamis Mushait, which lies 884 kilometers (549 miles) south of the capital Riyadh, using Qasef-2K drones. Sensitive military positions were destroyed during the air raid.
“Drones and missile operations will continue, and will expand … in a manner that is not expected by the Saudi regime as long as it continues its aggression, siege and contempt,” Sare’e said.
