Prime Minister Dr. Moeen Abdul-Malik said that all indications confirm that the Houthi militia has chosen outright escalation, and the group and Iran behind it do not see peace as an option in an explicit challenge to international efforts.
Moeen added in his tweets on Twitter, “The continued targeting of civilian airports and civilians, the latest of which is Abha Airport, puts us and the coalition in front of the responsibility to end this dangerous threat to stability and security of the Arab region.”
He pointed out that targeting Abha airport is not just a crime repeated by the Houthi militia, and not only a continuation of the behavior of Iran’s militias in tampering with the security of the region, but also as a result of the modest condemnations of the fascist terrorism of the Houthis and extremists in the region, adding, “Here, the sayings are believed such as ‘Whoever does not punish terrorism, he commands’. make it.”
The official spokesman for the coalition forces, “Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen,” Brigadier General Turki Al-Maliki, said that the Saudi air defenses managed today, Thursday (12:05) February 10, 2022 AD to thwart an attempt to cross-border hostile action using a booby-trapped drone launched by the terrorist Houthi militia. It is backed by Iran in a systematic and deliberate way to target civilians traveling and working at Abha International Airport.
The Arab coalition announced that the number of wounded as a result of the Saudi defense response to the attack that tried to target Abha airport has risen to 12 people of different nationalities.
