Yemen conducts drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s Jizan airport

Yemen’s al-Masirah TV channel reported on Sunday that Qasif-K2 combat drones had targeted drone bunkers and stations at the Jizan airport after collecting intelligence on the sites. It quoted a military source as saying that Saudi Arabia had converted the Jizan airport into a military base. Over the past few weeks, the Yemeni Army and allied Popular Committees have carried out several drone attacks on the Jizan and Najran airports in retaliation for the war that Saudi Arabia has been leading on Yemen since March 2015. Last month, a Yemeni drone targeted a major oil pumping station deep inside Saudi Arabia, forcing state crude giant Aramco to temporarily shut down pumping operations at the site. Yemen’s Defense Minister Mohammed Nasser al-Atifi said last week that the country had made great strides in its defense sector and would “surprise” Saudi Arabia and those countries in the military coalition that Riyadh is leading in the war against Yemen.
