Qasef-2K drones, that hit Abha International Airport early Friday, successfully targeted air traffic control radar, Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Yahia Sare’e has revealed, pointing out that the Yemeni response operations are continuing as long as the aggression siege continued on Yemen.
“The attack of the early hours of Friday morning towards Abha International Airport targeted the air traffic control radar, causing it to be out of service and leading to suspension of flights there,” Sare’e posted on Facebook.
Brigadier Sare’e denied Saudi allegations of intercepting Yemeni drones, “the Saudi regime’s claims to intercept drones is incorrect,” stressing that the drones “arrived and hit their targets with high accuracy – thanks to God.”
He reiterated the airports and military sites of the countries of aggression have become insecure.
“Our operations are continuing to escalate towards airports and military sites as long as the aggression and siege on our country continued,” he added.
The Armed Forces Spokesman also called on airlines and civilians to move away from airports and military sites because they have become legitimate targets.
The Air Force of the Yemeni Army and Committees on the early hours of Friday morning carried out several attacks with Qasef-2K drones on Saudi Arabia’s Abha airport two days after it was hit by a cruise missile.
On June 12, the Rocketry Force targeted Abha Airport with a cruise missile that hit its target accurately. An Air Force source confirmed halting the air traffic at the airport after being targeted.
