Saudi Arabia Air Base hit with drone strikes

SANAA - Yemeni armed forces have conducted drone strikes on King Khalid air base in Saudi Arabia's southwestern Asir Province in retaliation for the kingdom’s massive bombing of Sana'a early Saturday.

The al-Masirah TV channel reported that Yemeni army soldiers and allied fighters from Popular Committees used Qasif-K2 combat drones to target the air base near the city of Khamis Mushait.

It quoted Yemen’s armed forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare'e as saying that the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs) had accurately hit radar and military sites at the Saudi base.

The retaliation came after Saudi warplanes carried out airstrikes on Sana'a's September 21 park and the Ministry of Media Affairs earlier in the day, al-Masirah reported.

Saudi air raids, it added, also targeted Farijah Camp in the Arhab district of Sana'a Province.
