A spokesman for the Houthi forces, Brigadier Yahya Sari, said that his forces carried out a massive attack with drones on the King Khalid base in Khamis Mushait, south of Saudi Arabia, while the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Major General Hussein Salami, said that Saudi Arabia and the UAE are powerless in Yemen.
The military spokesman, Houthi, added that the air attack on the Saudi base by "K2" bombers had accomplished its goal accurately by hitting the warplanes, the take-off and landing runways.
Brigadier General Sari said the attack came in response to what he described as "crimes of aggression and its continued blockade of the Yemeni people."
On the other hand, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported that the Saudi-led coalition forces were downing a Houthi plane launched by the Houthis towards Saudi Arabia.
Two previous attacks,
and the Houthis targeted the King Khaled base two days ago with two attacks from "K2" drones. The first attack affected the military communications system, and the second targeted tanks and a petrol station at the base.
However, Colonel Turki al-Maliki (the official spokesman for the coalition forces), who is led by Saudi Arabia, stated that the coalition forces managed to intercept and shoot down two Marching planes launched by the Houthis from the Yemeni governorate of Amran towards Khamis Mushait.
On the other hand, Brigadier-General Sariea stated on his Facebook page that he will hold a press conference today to unveil two air defense systems and offer scenes to shoot down and injure aircraft for the first time, including the recent operation to shoot down American planes marching in the airspace of Dhamar Governorate (130 km south of Sanaa).
The Revolutionary Guards
In a related context, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards - in press statements in the eastern city of Mashhad - said that Saudi Arabia and the UAE are powerless in Yemen, and they do not have the ability to make a decision or any political move.
Major General Salami added that Saudi airports and oil installations are no longer safe from the Houthi attacks.
In recent weeks, the Houthis have carried out numerous drone attacks at an increasing frequency on locations inside Saudi territory.
The group announced this year that it had set a target bank that includes three hundred targets, which are military and vital installations and installations along the geography of the Emirates and Saudi Arabia, as well as military installations, headquarters and bases of the Saudi-Emirati alliance inside Yemen.
