Yemen's Houthis attack Saudi Arabia's Abha airport: spokesman

CAIRO (Reuters) - Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis attacked Saudi Arabia’s Abha airport with a cruise missile on Wednesday, the group’s military spokesman said in a tweet.

Spokesman Yahya Saria said the missile targeted plane hangars and led to air traffic being halted at the airport.

The Saudi-led coalition fighting Houthis in Yemen said a “hostile projectile” fired by the Iran-aligned group landed in Abha airport late Wednesday but caused no injuries, Saudi state news agency quoted the coalition military spokesman as saying early on Thursday.
