Yemeni airstrikes hit Khamis Mushait airbase again

Yemeni forces have on Friday launched major air attacks on sensitive targets deep inside Saudi Arabia.

Yemeni army spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said that the Yemeni air force carried out a major aerial attack on a number of important and sensitive targets on Friday afternoon, targeting the King Khalid Air Base in Khamis Mushait.

He confirmed that the attack was carried out with five Qasef-2K dones, pointing out that they hit the targets with high accuracy.

Brigadier General Sare’e stressed that the drone attacks come in response to the escalation of US-Saudi aggression and its ongoing siege on Yemeni people.

The attack marks the second of its kind within just a few hours.

Earlier on Friday, the Yemeni Air Force bombed important positions at King Khalid Air Base and Abha International Airport. Three Samad-3 and Qasef-2K aircraft drones were used in the attack.

Over the past few days, the Yemeni Air Force has intensified its military operations targeting important targets in the capital of Saudi aggression Riyadh, as well as on Jeddah, Asir, Jizan and Najran.
