Yemen’s armed forces and allied Popular Committees fighters have conducted a retaliatory drone strike on King Khalid Airbase in southwestern Saudi Arabia.
A Qasef-2K drone was used in the retaliation that targeted the airbase near the city of Khamis Mushait at dawn Monday, spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Saree said.
The strike was accurate and hit its target “successfully,” he added.
Saree stressed that the attack was part of the “legitimate” response to the Saudi aggression on his country, vowing to conduct more “painful” strikes against the kingdom until Riyadh stops its war on Yemen and lifts its siege on the Yemeni nation.
The airbase was targeted in a similar drone strike on Sunday.
