The Houthi group (Ansar Allah) said on Thursday its drones carried out a massive assault on Najran regional airport in southern Saudi Arabia.

Houthi forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree said in a statement that "the Air Force carried out a massive offensive operation with a number of Qasif 2k drones on Najran Regional Airport."

He added that the operation "targeted warplanes locations and hit their targets accurately, causing disruption of air navigation at the airport."

No immediate comment has been issued by the Saudi-led coalition or Yemeni government on the Houthi claim.

The Houthi military spokesman noted that "this targeting comes in response to coalition air strikes, which in the past 12 hours have increased to more than 80 air strikes".

Saudi Arabia has been leading a military coalition in Yemen since 26 March 2015, in support of forces loyal to President Hadi to retake areas controlled by Houthi group (Ansar Allah).

Since mid-May, Houthis have intensified firing ballistic missiles and launching drone attacks on Saudi territory "in reply to coalition airstrikes that target Yemeni civilians and infrastructure."
