Houthi Suicide Drones Hit ´Sensitive’ Targets In Saudi Capital

On April 1, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) announced that they had attacked several “sensitive” and “important” targets in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Yemeni group, said that the targets were struck with four suicide drones. The spokesman claimed that the attack was successful, without providing any further details.

“Our operations will continue as long as the aggression and siege are ongoing,” the spokesman said, calling the attack a “legitimate response”.

Aviation observers noted a disturbance in civilian flights over Riyadh and other parts of the Kingdom. This usually indicates that an attack is taking place.

The Saudi-led coalition has not commented on the Houthis claims, yet. While the silence of the coalition is a sign that the attack was successful, no explosions were reported by Saudi citizens on social media.

The attack on Riyadh is the most recent in a series of operations by the Houthis against high-value targets deep inside Saudi Arabia.

Less than a week ago, the Houthis attacked targets in Ras Tanura, Rabigh, Yanbu and Jizan, ‘Asir, Najran as well as Kind Abdulaziz Air Base with 18 drones and eight missiles. The large attack, codenamed “Operation National Day of Resilience,” was meant to commemorate six years of the Saudi war on Yemen.
