Saudi intercepts five Yemen rebel drones

Saudi forces yesterday intercepted five Yemeni rebel drones in the second aerial attack on an airport in the kingdom’s southwest in two days, a Riyadh-led military coalition fighting the rebels said.

The drones targeted Abha airport, where a rebel missile on Wednesday left 26 civilians wounded, and the nearby city of Khamis Mushait, which houses a major airbase, the coalition said in a statement. The airport was operating normally with no fights disrupted, it added.

Wednesday’s missile strike hit the civil airport in Abha, which is a popular summer getaway for Saudis seeking escape from the searing heat of Riyadh or Jeddah.
