The spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces announced on Sunday morning that a drone by the army and popular committees targeted the King Khalid airbase in the Khamis Mushait area of the southern Saudi province of Asir.

Iran PressMiddle East: The Yemeni army and popular committees have targeted King Khalid Air Base with an indigenized Qassif K2 drone, Yahya al-Saree said.

A spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces said the operation was a precise response to the escalation of the aggression and siege against Yemen.

Jizan and Abha airports, as well as King Khalid Air Base in southern Saudi Arabia, have been repeatedly targeted in recent months by drone and missile units of the Yemeni army and popular committees.

The two airports, as well as King Khalid Air Base, are used to refuel and support fighter jets used in Saudi coalition airstrikes in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia, with the support of the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and several other countries, invaded Yemen in March 2015. The outbreak of war by Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen has so far killed tens of thousands and displaced millions of Yemenis.

The Saudi military aggression has also left the impoverished country of Yemen severely short of food and medicine.

The Saudi regime and its allies have so far failed to achieve their goals in the war against Yemenis. 219
