Yemen’s Houthis conduct drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s Jizan airport

Yemeni armed forces have launched fresh drone attacks on the airport in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Jizan region.
Yemen’s TV channel reported on Sunday that Qasif-K2 combat drones had targeted drone bunkers and stations at the Jizan airport after collecting intelligence on the sites.
It quoted a military source as saying that Saudi Arabia had converted the Jizan airport into a military base.
Yemen’s Houthis said they seized more than 20 military positions inside Saudi Arabia, promising to release video footage of the daring attack later this week.
Over the past few weeks, the Yemeni Army and allied Popular Committees have carried out several drone attacks on the Jizan and Najran airports in retaliation for the war that Saudi Arabia has been leading on Yemen since March 2015.
Congress has officially passed a resolution to end US support for the war in Yemen, a strong rebuke of President Donald Trump’s foreign policy toward Saudi Arabia.
The war in Yemen, directed by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (or MBS, as he’s commonly referred to in Washington), has killed more than 50,000 people and left more than 20 million Yemenis in need of humanitarian assistance.
Progressive lawmakers, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), have been pushing to end this war.
