Saudi authorities have displayed in King Abdul Aziz airport a number of missiles, drones and other military equipment which they said Houthis in Yemen use to attack the kingdom.

The Saudi defense and foreign ministries are showing these equipment to Arab and Muslim delegates arriving at the airport to participate in the Gulf, Arab and Islamic summits held in Mecca on Thursday and Friday.

These equipment and bombers "prove by evidence the Iranian regime's involvement in these criminal, terrorist acts," the Saudi official news agency reported.

Among the "Iranian-made weapons shown at the exhibition are Qiam missile that was fired on Riyadh in March 2018, a similar missile fired on Mecca, Ababil / Qasef and Rasid drones, and RPG," SPA added.

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 (Ansarullah) group seen as proxy for Iran in the Arab Peninsula country.

In the last weeks, Houthis have intensified drone attacks on Saudi targets, including two on oil pumping stations near Riyadh, with the rebels saying they are in retaliation to coalition strikes on its forces and civilian targets in Yemen.

The Houthis say they fire ballistic missiles and UAVs at Saudi lands in retaliation to coalition strikes on its forces and civilian targets in Yemen.

Yemen 4-year war has left tens of thousands killed, hundreds of thousands injured, and 3 million displaced.

The 4-year war has triggered what the UN calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 14 million people risking famine and some 1.8 million children suffering malnutrition.
