The Houthis group (Ansar Allah) in Yemen said on Wednesday it targeted the Abha airport in southwest Saudi Arabia with a ballistic missile.

The Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV reported that the Houthi group missile force strikes Abha Airport with cruise missile and confirms a direct and accurate hit of target halt of all flights.

Al-Masirah TV quoted a source in the rocket force as saying the attack halt of all flights in Saud Abha Airport.

 The Houthis group (Ansar Allah) in Yemen said on Tuesday it carried out several offensive operations on the King Khaled air base in Khamis Mushait.

Two days ago, they also announced attacks on the Jizan airport in southwestern Saudi Arabia, in a fifth operation of its kind in a month.

Houthi forces on Tuesday warned Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, which are leading a military alliance to shore up legitimacy in Yemen, "with great surprises" if their military operations are not stopped and called on civilians to stay away from the military and vital goals of the two countries.

The Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV quoted Houthi group army` spokesman, group Brigadier General Yahya Saree, as saying: "We advise the Saudi and UAE regimes to stop the aggression unless we have great surprises and pressure and the coming days will reveal to them."

He added: "We are able, thanks to God, to perform more than one operation at the same time according to the options available and in the time and time we define."

A spokesman for the Houthi forces that the bank aims to expand day by day, calling on civilians in Saudi Arabia and the UAE to "move away from all military objectives and vitality as they became legitimate targets."

The military spokesman of the Houthi stressed that "after the process of the ninth of Ramadan is not as before", and that "the aggression have to calculate that,". He refers to the attacks launched by the forces of his group on 14 May last, corresponding to the ninth of Ramadan with seven drones and targeted Saudi oil facilities in Riyadh.

Mid-May, Houthis claim their forces hit Saudi targets, including two oil pumping stations near Riyadh, with the rebels saying they are in retaliation to coalition strikes on its forces and civilian targets in Yemen.

Houthis sporadically fire ballistic missiles and UAVs on Saudi territory "in reply to coalition airstrikes that target Yemeni civilians and infrastructure," while Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of providing Houthis with such missiles.

Houthis said they have a bank of 300 vital targets in Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.
