The Houthis (Ansar Allah) continue to launch suicide drones from Yemen at high-value targets in different parts of Saudi Arabia.
Early on April 8, the group announced that it had launched a Qasef-2K suicide drone at Saudi King Khalid Air Base in the southern province of ‘Asir. The drone is a copy of the Iranian Ababil-2.
In an official statement, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Houthis, claimed that the attack was successful. He said that the drone had hit its target with high-accuracy.
Nevertheless, the Saudi-led coalition claimed that it had shot down the drone over the city of Khamis Mushait. The city is located near King Khalid Air Base. These claims are yet to be confirmed.
Approximately ten hours after the attack, the coalition claimed that it had shot down a second drone launched by the Houthis from Yemen. However, the Yemeni group didn’t announce any new attacks.
The Houthis launched dozens of attacks with drone and missiles on Saudi Arabia in the last few months. Many of the attacks were successful.
Despite its inability to stop Houthi attacks or to make gains on the ground in Yemen, Saudi Arabia is still determined to go on with its war on the country.
