Saudi: Ten injured as Houthi missile targets Jazan airport

Ten people were injured on Friday during a drone attack by Iran-backed Houthi militia on the King Abdulaziz Airport in Jazan, the Arab Coalition supporting Yemen’s legitimate government said.

Coalition spokesman Brig. Gen. Turki Al-Maliki was quoted by state media as saying two armed drones launched from Yemen were shot down from the sky by Saudi air defenses.

Falling debris from the destroyed unmanned aerial vehicles caused minor injuries on passengers and airport personnel, the coalition said.

Among the injured were six Saudi passengers and airport employees, three Bangladeshi workers and a Sudanese worker.
