The Almasirah TV broadcaster reported earlier on Wednesday that Houthis had launched another drone attack on Najran airport, targeting plane hangars. There have been, however, no reports of damage or casualties.
Meanwhile, UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said in a press briefing on Wednesday that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has condemned a second armed drone attack by the rebel Houthi movement targeting an airport in Saudi Arabia’s city of Najran.
Guterres called on all parties to the conflict in Yemen to remain calm, avoid further escalation of tensions, and engage in constructive negotiations with UN Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths to achieve implementation of the Stockholm Agreement.
Earlier in May, the airport in Najran resumed its work after a four-year break provoked by the military conflict in neighbouring Yemen.
Yemen has been locked in a conflict between the government forces led by President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi and the Houthi rebels. A Saudi-led coalition has been conducting strikes against the Houthis at Hadi's request since March 2015.
