TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Yemeni army launched armed drones to attack Saudi Arabia’s Abha Airport as well as King Khalid Airbase in the southern town of Khamis Mushait in retaliation for Riyadh’s continuation of a six-year-long war on Yemen, said a spokesman.

 

In a tweet on Monday morning, Yemeni army spokesman Yahya Sare'e wrote that the country’s air force managed to carry out “accurate” attacks with Qasef-2K (Striker-2K) combat drones against the two positions.

“It is part of our natural and legitimate right to respond to the crimes of the [war coalition] and its continuing blockade,” Sare'e added, according to Press TV.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies, chiefly the United Arab Emirates (UAE), launched a war against Yemen in March 2015 to restore the government of former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who resigned in 2014 and then flee to Riyadh.

According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the war has killed almost a quarter of a million Yemenis, caused outbreaks of disease, turned Yemen into the world’s worst humanitarian crisis and brought the poor Arab country to the verge of famine.
