Houthis Strike Abha Airport, Wounding 26 Travelers

A missile launched by the Iran-aligned Houthi militia hit an airport in southern Saudi Arabia and injured 26 travelers.

Wednesday’s missile strike hit the civil airport in the mountain resort of Abha, which is a popular summer getaway for Saudis seeking escape from the searing heat of Riyadh or Jeddah.

The Houthi-run Masirah TV confirmed the attack earlier today that Houthis had launched a cruise missile attack on the Saudi airport.

Eight of the wounded were admitted to hospital, coalition spokesman Turki al-Malki said.

The other 18 were discharged after receiving first aid, he added in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.

The Saudi-led military coalition said it would make a firm response to a missile attack.

Malki said the strike on the airport amounted to a “terrorist attack” on a civilian target which could be considered a “war crime.”

He said the coalition would “take stern action” to deter the rebels and protect civilians.
