Houthi missile attack on Saudi airport wounds 26 civilians
YEMEN: At least 26 civilians including three women and two children were injured in a missile attack by Yemen’s rebel Houthi movement on an airport in south-western Saudi Arabia.
A rebel source had earlier claimed that the facility was hit “with precision”.
Saudi Arabia leads a coalition of Arab states backing Yemen’s government in its four-year war with the Houthis.
Yemen has been devastated by a conflict that escalated in March 2015, when the rebels seized control of much of the west of the country and forced President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi to flee abroad.
