Houthis announced an attack on an international airport in Saudi Arabia

Accounts controlled by the Yemeni Houthi groups (the Ansar-Allah group) publish materials informing them of another strike on the territory of Saudi Arabia.


According to the latest reports, the Houthis fired on the area where the Abha International Airport is located. The airport is located near the half-million city of the same name in the south-west of the Saudi kingdom.

According to reports from Houthi sources, they used drones equipped with explosive devices to attack the territory of the Saudi airport.

A few days earlier, the command of the so-called Saudi coalition opposing the Houthis announced the interception of one kamikaze drone that the Ansar Allah armed groups were trying to send to the positions of the coalition forces. Against this background, the Houthi command announced that a list of "priority targets" in Saudi Arabia had been drawn up, which would be targeted in the near future. Abha Airport was on this list.

However, the official Riyadh has not yet commented on the Houthi attack on the international air harbor. Also at the moment there is no information about the damage caused to the airport infrastructure.

Meanwhile, the following footage from Saudi Abhi appeared on France24 channel:

      The video shows the consequences.
      It looks like there were two explosions.
      One just outside the airport building causing minor damage.
      The second one is about some kind of "trailer" with a small fenced area.
      Both explosions are of low power.

        A trifle, but unpleasant.

    Unpleasant features of technical progress. Yesterday, aircraft models, a hobby (count, self-indulgence), and today - a dangerous weapon, a means of attack and terror ... not expensive and affordable even for not too technologically advanced users ...

      It is necessary to mobilize the old people who were pioneers in aircraft modeling circles.

        Nevermind. Sets can be ordered at Alibaba. In marketable quantities. True, without warheads. This is already local "creativity" ...

              For the second year now I have not been able to finish building a workshop in the country. And when he started it, he thought about how to fall into childhood - the construction of boats. In between distilling, of course.

                I tried once, in the evening to cook, so I watched until morning, changed the cans. How cut off. One minute to the store, no pain.

    I am always amazed at how the barefoot Houthis, so skillfully carried out an attack on an oil refinery in Saudi Arabia, and then they cannot repeat it, at a seedy airport.
    Or maybe it was not the Houthis who hammered the plant?

      The drones were different. It is unlikely that the plant was attacked by home-made products with grenades. They were more serious there. And there cannot be many of them. Again, depending on who else organized. This is clearly the work of some field commander.

        In a straight line to the airport, from the borders of Yemen, 100 km. What kind of field commanders do they have then, can they have such resources

    We just need to strengthen the oil price a little.

    It would be better if they banged on some refinery.
