Houthi projectile injures 26 civilians in Saudi Arabia's Abha airport

Yemen’s Iranian-backed Houthi militia attacked Saudi Arabia's Abha airport on Wednesday, injuring 26 people, a statement by the Arab coalition said.

Arab coalition spokesman Colonel Turki Al Malki said a projectile, the type of which is still to be determined, fell on the airport's arrival hall, which is used by thousands of civilians on a daily basis.

Colonel Al Malki said the attack on the terminal in the kingdom's south-west amounts to “war crimes” and that the coalition would hold the rebels responsible.

The airport lies around 125 miles north of the Saudi border with Yemen.
