Yemen’s Houthi militants conduct bomb-laden drone assault toward Saudi frontier air base

( MENAFN ) On Sunday, May. 2 Yemen's Houthi militants struck the King Khalid Air Base in Saudi Arabia's southwestern frontier city of Khamis Mushait with a bomb-laden drone ahead of dawn, said the rebel outfit.

Houthi spokesperson Yehya Sarea stated in a report aired by the outfit’s al-Masirah TV: "the hit was accurate."

The Saudi-led coalition forces halted and demolished an armed drone that the Houthis fired in the direction of Khamis Mushait, reported Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV.

Cross-frontier missile and drone assault by the Iran-supported Houthis have intensified since February when the outfit started a major attack against the coalition-supported Yemeni administration army to seize the oil-rich province of Marib in central Yemen.
