The Yemeni Air Force carried out a retaliatory attack on the King Khalid Air Base in the south-west of Saudi Arabia, near Khamis Mushait.
“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.
“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.”
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.
The base has been attacked several times by Yemeni retaliatory missile and drone strikes over the past couple of months, with Saudi forces repeatedly incapable of fending off the Yemeni strikes.
