DUBAI—Yemen’s Iranian-aligned Houthi militia attacked Abha airport in Saudi Arabia on Thursday with drones, the group’s Al Masirah TV said, citing a military spokesman.

Over two weeks ago, the Houthi movement had just carried out drone attacks on warplane hangars and other military sites in Jizan airport in southern Saudi Arabia, the group’s Al-Masirah TV reported.

The Houthis, who are fighting a Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, have repeatedly launched attacks against targets in neighboring Saudi Arabia. Member countries of the Arab Coalition, led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, lead a successful push for the Houthis to be designated a terrorist group by the Arab Parliament on June 19.
