The Yemeni Air Force and Missile Forces carried out a joint retaliatory attack at dawn on Monday, against Saudi military sites in the south of Saudi Arabia.
The operation was carried out by four Qasef-2K drones and two Badr-type missiles, targeting military sites at Najran Airport and King Khalid Air Base in Khamis Mushait, said the spokesman for the Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e.
“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 has been repeatedly targeted due to its military importance in terms of its location close to the Yemeni border provides, which makes it easier for Saudi warplanes to take off for bombing against Yemen without needing to provide fuel in the air.
