One killed, 21 wounded in Houthi drone attack on Saudi airport
Egypt condemns assault, supports Saudi Arabia in responding to attacks
Published in Daily News Egypt on 27 - 06 - 2019

The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen announced on Sunday night that the Iran-backed Houthi movement launched a drone attack on Abha airport, located in the southern part of the kingdom.
The attack resulted in the death of a Syrian civilian and wounded 21 others.
Although the Al-Masirah TV, a television station run by the Houthi movement, confirmed the attack and said that the Houthi drones attacked the Abha and Jizan airports, the coalition itself did not confirm the attack on Jizan airport.
The conflict in Yemen erupted in September 2014, when the Ansar Allah "Houthi" group, backed by Iran, seized control of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.
Following the Houthi action in Saudi Arabia, the closest regional power to Yemen announced in March 2015, the formation of the Coalition for Supporting Legitimacy in Yemen.
The conflict in Yemen resulted in the death of over 100,000 civilians and wounded hundreds of thousands. Yemen is currently facing one of the world's biggest humanitarian crises torn between poverty, medical issues, and an ongoing war.
Saudi media said that the airport is working as usual and did not get impacted by the attack.
Two weeks ago, at least 26 people were wounded in a missile attack on Abha airport, after the Houthi movement fighters fired a missile toward Saudi territories. The list of injuries includes subjects of different nationalities, and includes three women and two children, according to the coalition.
Egypt strongly condemned the Houthi attack, stressing support for the Saudi people and government against the attacks and attempts to harm the stability and security of the kingdom. Egypt also supports Saudi Arabia in responding to the attacks.
