CAIRO (Reuters) – Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement said early on Friday that it carried out drone attacks on Abha Airport in Saudi Arabia, the group’s Al-Masirah TV reported.

There was no Saudi confirmation of the attacks.

The Saudi-led military coalition vowed to respond firmly to a Wednesday cruise missile attack by Yemeni Houthi forces on the airport in southern Saudi Arabia that wounded 26 people.
