Arab Coalition in Yemen attacks drone base next to Sanaa's airport
Raids target drone operators and maintenance sites, and a communications system
The Arab Coalition fighting in Yemen raided an air base next to Sanaa’s airport to knock out drones.
The raids were aimed at drone experts, operators and maintenance sites, as well as a communications system, coalition spokesman Col Turki Al Malki told the Saudi news agency Spa.
“The terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia have turned Sanaa airport into a military barracks and a place to launch drones for terrorist attacks that threaten regional and international security,” Col Al Malki said.
He said the targets were legitimate and that the operation was consistent with international humanitarian law.
