A drone attack has taken place at an airport in Saudi Arabia in which 8 persons were seriously injured while one passenger aircraft was also damaged. According to Saudi official media, Saudi Arabia's airport has now been targeted due to the ongoing war against Houthi rebels in Yemen. In Yemen, war is going on between the Houthi rebels and the Saudi Arabian army.
According to reports, no team has so far taken responsibility for the attack. This is the second time in the last 24 hours that such an attack has taken place. However, when the airport was first targeted, no rebel party took responsibility for the attack. The Saudi-led military coalition fighting Iranian-backed Shiite rebels in Yemen has not elaborated on the attack. Nor has there been any clear news about the damage.
The army has only reported that the security forces intercepted the explosive drone. Since 2015, Yemen's Houthi rebels, plagued by a Saudi-led military coalition, have targeted military installations inside Saudi Arabia. International airports are also targeted by the rebels. They are also targeting important oil plants in the state. Yemen has been facing civil war for a time. Houthi rebels captured Yemen's capital Sanaa and then ruled most parts of the country.
