Reading Time: 1 minute


Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement launched a drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s Najran airport, the group’s Almasirah TV said early on Wednesday.

It said it targeted hangars containing war planes. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. There was also no immediate comment from Saudi Arabia or the Saudi-led coalition.

It was not clear if there were any injuries or what the extent of damage was.

The Houthis’ satellite news channel said the attack hit the airport in Najran with a Qasef-2K drone, striking an “arms depot”.

Najran, 840km southwest of Riyadh, lies on the Saudi-Yemen border and has repeatedly been targeted by the Houthis.
