Houthis say they have attacked airbase in Saudi city of Khamis Mushait

A Yemeni Houthi military spokesman said on Tuesday that forces had attacked the King Khalid near the southwestern Saudi city of Khamis Mushait with drones, the Houthi al-Masirah TV reported.

The spokesman had also said earlier that Houthi forces had attacked drone hangars at Jizan airport.

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said it had intercepted two drones in Yemeni airspace that had been launched towards Jizan, Saudi state TV said.

But there was no immediate comment on the reported attack on the air base.
