The Houthi affiliated news channel, Al-Masirah, reported late Saturday that the Houthi terrorists targeted Saudi airports in Abha and Jizan with Qasef-2K drones.

The Houthi terrorists have stepped up drone and missile attacks on cities in neighboring Saudi Arabia in recent months, including two recent strikes on the Abha airport, as tensions have risen between Iran and Gulf Arab states allied with the United States.
