Yemeni Air Force carried out a retaliatory attack on King Khalid Air Base in the south-west of Saudi Arabia, near Khamis Mushait.

A Qasef-2K drone was used in the retaliation that targeted the airbase at dawn Sunday, the spokesman for the Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said.

The strike was accurate and hit its target “successfully,” he added.

Sare’e stressed that the attack was part of the “legitimate response to the escalation of the Saudi aggression and the continued siege on our dear country.”

The airbase has been repeatedly targeted due to its military importance in terms of its location closest to the Yemeni border provides, which makes it easier for Saudi warplanes to take off and hit their targets in less time and without needing to provide fuel in the air as their taking off from the bases and airports from Jeddah and other Saudi cities.
