The Yemeni army on Saturday morning waged a fresh aerial attack on King Khalid Air Base in Khamis Mushait, southern Saudi Arabia.
“King Khalid air base was targeted by a Qasef-2K drone at dawn Sunday,” the spokesman for the Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said.
تمكن سلاح الجو المسير بفضل الله فجر يومنا هذا الأحد من إستهداف قاعدة الملك خالد الجوية بخميس مشيط بطائرة نوع قاصف 2k محققا إصابة دقيقة .
يأتي هذا الإستهداف ردا على استمرار الحصار والعدوان على بلدنا العزيز.

“The new strike was accurate and hit its target successfully,” he added.
Sare’e stressed that the attack is part of the “legitimate response to the escalation of the Saudi aggression and the continued siege on our dear country.”
This is the second attack in less than 24 hours .
King Khalid air base has been repeatedly targeted due to its military importance in terms of its location closest to the Yemeni border, which makes it easier for Saudi warplanes to take off and hit their targets across Yemen.
