Houthis announce a large-scale attack in the King Khalid Air Base area south of Saudi Arabia

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The al-Houthi group claimed Monday evening that a large-scale attack on military positions at the King Khalid base in southern Saudi Arabia was carried out in response to the raid on the Yemeni province of Saada.

“The Air Force is carrying out a large operation towards the King Khalid Air Base in Khamis Mushayt, Aseer, with a number of 2k bombers targeting military aircraft bases and other military targets, which hit their targets with high accuracy,” said Brigadier General Yahya Sari.

“This targeting comes in response to the ongoing aggression, the unjust siege and the heinous crimes committed against our great Yemeni people,” he added.

The attack was carried out after Houthi media and local medical sources said on Monday that at least 14 people were killed by a strike that was said to be a Saudi attack on a popular market in the southwestern province of Saada.
