JAZAN: Prince Muhammad bin Abdulaziz, deputy governor of Jazan, paid a visit to a hospital to meet those who were injured in Saturday’s Houthi drone attack targeting King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Airport. Accompanying him were top officials and hospital staff.
Two armed drones launched from Yemen were shot down from the sky by Saudi air defenses.
Falling debris from the destroyed unmanned aerial vehicles caused minor injuries to passengers and airport personnel. Among the injured were six Saudi passengers and airport employees, three Bangladeshi workers and a Sudanese worker.
The latest attacks were condemned by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab Parliament.
Targeting civilian airports poses a threat to air traffic security, warned the Arab Parliament.
