Drone Attacks injure 10 at Saudi Airport

The Saudi-led Coalition said ten people were injured in two drone attacks by suspected Iran-backed Houthi militia on King Abdulaziz airport in Jazan late Friday and early Saturday. 

Among the injured were six Saudi passengers and airport employees, three Bangladeshi workers, and a Sudanese worker, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

According to the report, a second drone attack was intercepted and destroyed by Saudi air defenses Saturday. 

There was no immediate claim of responsibility by the Houthis however, several cross-border aerial attacks by the group on Saudi Arabia have been reported since January.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Secretary-General Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen, strongly condemned the attacks and reiterated support for all measures taken by the Kingdom, to maintain its security, stability, and safety of citizens and residents on its territories, the state news agency reported.
