King Khalid airbase targeted by Yemeni drone

Yemeni Air Force carried out a retaliatory attack on King Khalid Air Base in the south-west of Saudi Arabia, in Khamis Mushait.

A Qasef-2K drone was used in the retaliation that targeted the airbase at dawn Wednesday, spokesman for the Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said.

The strike was accurate and hit its target “successfully,” he added.

Sare’e stressed that the attack was part of the “legitimate response to the escalation of the Saudi aggression and the continued siege on our dear country.”

The airbase was targeted in a similar drone strike on Monday.

Yemen’s Air Force has stepped up the retaliatory attacks on Saudi Arabia in recent months.

Since the beginning of April, the Armed Forces have implemented more than 13 offensive operations, which have diversified their objectives and weapons. Among the most important and largest of these was the 30th of Shaaban Operation, which targeted, with 17 drones and ballistic missiles, Aramco refineries in Jeddah and Jubail regions, and other vital targets in Jizan.
