drones with explosives hit king abdullah airport in KSA, 10 injured in this attack

Six Saudis, three Bangladeshi nationals and one Sudanese were injured in the first attack, Saudi state media said, adding some of the airport’s facade windows were shattered in the attack.

Two drones loaded with explosive materials hit the King Abdullah Airport in Saudi Arabia in which 10 people sustained injuries who were shifted to hospital.

Two explosives-laden drones attacked King Abdullah airport in Jizan city early Saturday morning, located in the southern part of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Saudi-led coalition said.

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 explosives-laden drone was intercepted early on Saturday, the coalition said, without giving details on any injuries 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 launches drone and missile attacks targeting the gulf kingdom.
