Yemen’s Houthi movement launched an attack on Abha civilian airport in southern Saudi Arabia on Sunday that killed one person and wounded 21 others, the Arab-led coalition battling the group in Yemen said.
Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV earlier said that the Iran-aligned movement had targeted Abha and Jizan airports in the south of the kingdom with drones attacks.
“A terrorist attack by the Iran-backed Houthi militia targeted Abha airport, killing a Syrian resident and wounding 21 civilians,” the coalition said in a statement carried on Saudi state television.
It did not confirm an attack on Jizan airport.
Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV said a suspected drone hit the parking lot in Abha airport, which is about 200 km north of the Yemen border and serves domestic and regional routes.
Saudi state TV said flights had resumed at the airport, where operations were now running normally.
