The Arab Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen announced the details and developments of the terrorist Houthi attack, which targeted King Abdullah Airport in the Jazan region, southern Saudi Arabia.
Colonel Turki al-Maliki, a spokesman for the Arab coalition, said in a statement that a booby-trapped drone was used in an attempt to hostile attack on King Abdullah Airport in Jizan by the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia.
Al-Maliki confirmed that 10 civilians were injured, including passengers and airport workers.
Al-Maliki explained that (6) cases of injuries were for passengers and airport workers of Saudi nationality, (3) cases of workers of Bangladeshi nationality, and one case of a worker of Sudanese nationality.
According to Al-Maliki, the hostile attempt resulted in minor material damage and some windows at the airport were shattered.
Al-Maliki accused the terrorist Houthi militia of continuing its immoral practices of trying to target civilians and civilian objects, stressing that targeting a civilian airport may amount to a war crime for deliberately targeting civilians and protected civilian objects, especially under international humanitarian law and its customary rules.
Al-Maliki pointed out that the Joint Forces Command continues to implement operational measures to neutralize the sources of threat in cases of self-defense and imminent attack in a manner that ensures the protection of civilian objects and civilians, and in accordance with international humanitarian law and its customary rules.
The coalition showed pictures of the remains of the wreckage and parts of the second booby-trapped drone that was intercepted and destroyed by the Saudi defenses and thwarted the attempt to target civilians at King Abdullah Airport in Jizan.
