Yemen's Houthis call for new attack on Saudi Arabian Abha | Saudi Arabia News

Yemen's Houthi movement launched a new drone attack on Abha Airport in southern Saudi Arabia on Monday, Al Masirah TV said.

There was no immediate confirmation of the attack from Saudi Arabia, which triggered air strikes on Houthi rebels in Yemen's capital Sanaa on Saturday. This is part of an escalation of attacks that triggered regional tensions.

The Houthis have been increasing drone and missile strikes on cities in neighboring Saudi Arabia in recent months as tensions between Iran and the Arab states allied with the United States in the Middle East have increased.

In March, a coalition led by Saudi Arabia intervened in Yemen to support internationally recognized President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who was forced out of power by the Houthis.

Last week, the Houthis launched several drone and rocket attacks on southern regions of Saudi Arabia, including Abha, Khamis Mushait and Jizan.

At least 26 people were wounded in a Houthis rocket attack on Jizan Airport on Wednesday.

proxy war

More than 10,000 people have been killed since the coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) began its campaign almost four years ago with the support of the West.

The civil war has brought the impoverished country to the brink of famine, according to the United Nations and aid agencies.

The Yemen conflict is widely viewed in the region as a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz have aggravated tensions and the US and Saudi Arabia have turned their backs on Tehran.

But the Houthis have refused to accept any orders from Tehran and say they have taken arms to fight corruption.

The rebels said they have the right to defend themselves in the face of more than four years of bombing in Saudi Arabia and an air and sea blockade.

ON Speaker of tThe Houthi forces had warned airlines and civilians on Friday that Saudi Arabia's airports and military sites were in danger of further raids.

"We announce to the Saudi regime that our operations against airports and military bases will continue as long as the Saudi aggression continues against our country.

"We also call on airlines and civilians to stay away from airports and military sites as they have become legitimate targets," said Yahya Sariee in a Facebook post.

In May, two oil pumping stations in Saudi Arabia were targeted by Houthi drones, resulting in minor supply disruptions, which showed an obvious significant leap in the drone capabilities of the Houthis.
