Retaliatory drone strike hits Saudi airbase in Khamis Mushait

Yemen’s Air Force carried out a fresh drone strike on the King Khalid Airbase in Khamis Mushait, south-west of Saudi Arabia.

“King Khalid airbase was targeted by a Qasef-2K drone at dawn Sunday,” the spokesman for the Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said.

 

The strike was “accurate,” and came in response to the continuing aggression and brutal siege on Yemen, he added.

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.
