Yemen drones hit Saudi airbase in precision counterattack

On Monday, army spokesman Yahya Sare'e was quoted by the al-Masirah television network as saying that the aircraft had stricken the King Khalid Airbase in the kingdom’s Asir region. The counter-raid used unmanned aerial vehicles of the Qasef 2K make, he added.   “The attack targeted warplane hangers and important military sites accurately,” Sare’e was cited by the network as saying.   Using ample Western support, the kingdom and its most important regional allies have been hitting Yemen in an indiscriminate invasion since March 2015. The military aggression has been seeking to restore the impoverished country’s former Saudi-allied government, whose officials have fled the country and refused to negotiate power.   Most recently, Saudi-led airstrikes killed at least 14 people, including children at a market in Yemen’s Sa’ada Province.   "There are two children among the martyrs," the manager of the local al-Jomhouri Hospital, Saleh Qorban told Reuters, adding that the sorties had also injured 23 others, including 11 minors   The army official said that the retaliatory drone strike had come in response to the continued aggression against the Yemeni people, which has been compounded by a siege employed against the country by the Saudi-led coalition.   A spokesman for Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, which has been defending the country against the invaders shoulder to shoulder with the army, strongly condemned the deadly strikes.   Mohammed Abdul-Salam said the kingdom’s heinous crimes were enjoying the support of the United States and the United Kingdom. He was referring to Washington and London’s generous arms support and logistical backing for the invasion.   Abdul-Salam also called on the international community to help stop the Saudi crimes.
