The Yemeni unmanned air force launched early Sunday a drone attack at King Khalid airbase in Khamis Msheit, according the military spokesman General Yahya Sarea.
General Sarea pointed out that a Qasef-2K explosive drone was employed in the attack, adding that it hit the target accurately.
According to General Sarea, the new attack comes in the context of the response to the ongoing Saudi aggression and blockade on Yemen.
The Yemeni army and popular committees launched on Saturday a major attack on the Saudi military posts in Jizan, inflicting heavy human and material losses upon them.
General Saree had announced early Saturday an attack on ‘King Khalid’ Airbase belonging to the Saudi coalition in Khamis Msheit with two “Qasef-2K” drones.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led Coalition, which is supported by US, UK, and Israel, in a bid to restore control to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is Riyadh’s ally.
Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis have been killed or injured in the strikes launched by the coalition, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition, which includes in addition to Saudi Arabia and UAE: Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, has been also imposing a harsh blockade against Yemenis.
