The attempted attack comes a day after eight people were injured when the coalition destroyed another Houthi drone that had targeted the Abha International Airport in Saudi Arabia.

The coalition was able to destroy the drone before it hit the airport, but shrapnel from the drone scattered around the premises, causing injuries and damage to a civilian aircraft.

That was the second attempted attack on Abha airport in less than 24 hours.

“At (0906) Tuesday (31 August 2021), a second attempt to target traveling civilians and staff at Abha International Airport by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia using a bomb-laden drone was thwarted,” al-Maliki said in a statement.
