Ten Injured In 2 Drone Attacks At Saudi’s King Abdullah Airport – State Media

PARIS, France – Ten people were injured in two explosive – laden drone attacks at King Abdullah airport in the southern Saudi city of Jizan late on Friday and early on Saturday, the Saudi – led coalition.

The military coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015, backing forces of the ousted government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi and fighting the Iran – aligned Houthi group.

Six Saudis, three Bangladeshi nationals and one Sudanese  were injured in the first attack, Saudi state media said, citing a coalition spokesman. Some of the airport’s facade windows were shattered in the attack, the spokesman said.

A second explosive – laden drone was intercepted early on Saturday, the coalition said, without giving details on any injures or damages.

Air traffic in King Abdullah airport was normal, state TV said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility by the Houthis. The group regularly launched drone and missile attacks targeting the gulf kingdom.
