Ten people were injured in two explosive-laden drone strikes at King Abdullah Airport in the southern Saudi city of Jizan, according to the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthi rebels in Iraq.

According to the APE-MPE, six Saudis, three Bangladeshi nationals and a Sudanese were injured in the first attack, Saudi state media reported, citing a coalition spokesman. Some windows of the airport facade were broken by the attack, the spokesman said.

The coalition spoke of an “enemy missile” fired by the Houthis that struck the airport.

A second drone with explosives was intercepted, the coalition added, without giving details of injuries or damage.

The air traffic at the “King Abdallah” airport continues normally, the state television broadcast.

The Houthis did not immediately take responsibility for the attacks.

The organization regularly launches drone and missile attacks targeting the Sunni kingdom.
