Saudi Arabia says one person has been killed and seven wounded in an attack allegedly carried out by the Houthi Yemeni rebels on the kingdom’s Abha airport shortly after 9 p.m. local time on Sunday. The attack comes less that two weeks after the same airport was attacked by a Houthi cruise missile, injuring at least 26 of the passengers inside. “A terrorist attack by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia took place at Abha international airport, through which thousands of civilian passengers pass daily. A Syrian national died and seven civilians were wounded,” said Arab coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki in a statement carried by Saudi Press Agency on Sunday. Al-Maliki did not specify what type of weapon was used in the attack. A Houthi spokesman, Yahia al-Sarie, said earlier Sunday the rebels had launched drone attacks on Saudi airports in Abha and Jizan.
