Houthi military spokesman Brigadier-General Yahya Sari said that the group's air force carried out two attacks by "Kassem" planes (K2) on King Khalid air base in "Khamis Mushait."

He added that the first attack targeted the military communications system at the base, while the second attack targeted tanks and gas station.

A spokesman for the Houthis said that the attacks hit the targets with high accuracy, pointing out that the targeting comes in response to the crimes of what he described as the aggression and the ongoing siege on the Yemeni people and its continuous raids, which amounted to forty raids in 48 hours, killing and wounding a number of civilians.

Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Arab coalition forces, Colonel Turki al-Maliki, said that the coalition forces managed to intercept and shoot down two planes fired by the Houthis from the Yemeni province of Amran towards Khamis Mushait in southwest Saudi Arabia.

"All attempts by the Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist militia to launch drones are doomed to fail," Maliki said, noting that the coalition is taking all operational procedures and best-of-engagement rules to deal with these aircraft to protect civilians.

Earlier, the military spokesman for the Houthis fired a ballistic missile at the joint operations room in the city of Samtah in southern Saudi Arabia, pointing out that the missile hit its target with high accuracy and left a large number of dead and wounded, including leaders.

In recent weeks, the Houthi group has carried out numerous drone attacks on rising positions inside Saudi territory.

The group announced this year that it has set a target bank of 300 targets, which are military headquarters and vital facilities along the geography of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, as well as the facilities, headquarters and military bases of the Saudi-Emirati alliance inside Yemen.
