Yemeni Drones Hit Saudi Airport, Aramco Facility in Border Area

18 2018 shows a Yemeni child walking in the rubble of a building that was destroyed in an air strike in the southern Yemeni city of Ta’izz

The facility reportedly belonged to the oil giant Saudi Aramco.

Houthis claimed the attack on Twitter, saying the intended target of the attack was the Saudi defense ministry in Riyadh.

The Houthis' Al-Masirah TV channel did not say when the attack took place nor did it give details of any damage caused.

Until recently, the GPC was headed by former Yemeni President Ali Abullah Saleh, who was killed late past year outside capital Sanaa by members of the Shia Houthi militia group.

Kerala to hold finance ministers meet to discuss terms in Finance Commission
Andhra Pradesh finance minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu said they were not blaming the Finance Commission or its composition. The commission is going to consider the 2011 census to calculate the population of the states.

He said Saudi forces also intercepted two missiles in the southern Jizan and Najran provinces close to the border with Yemen.

The Houthis said they were targeting an Aramco facility in Jizan, but the company said its facilities there were operating "normally and safely".

Their news agency SABA said four people were killed, including a woman and a child, and 10 others wounded in two air strikes on Wednesday in the Razih district of western Saada province.

Saudi Arabia and a coalition of mostly Gulf Arab states intervened in Yemen's civil war in 2015 to try and push back the Houthis after the movement drove the internationally recognised government into Saudi exile.

According to a 2017 report by Conflict Armament Research, the Qasef-1 is "consistent with descriptions and imagery" of an Iranian drone, the Ababil-T.

The coalition accuses the Houthis of being armed and supported by Iran - charges the group and Tehran deny.

Sharaf Lokman, a spokesman for the Houthis, said the attack came after Saleh al-Samad - president of the Supreme Political Council that runs Yemen's capital, Sanaa, and other rebel-held areas - declared the start of "a year of ballistic missiles".

One of the drones was targeting the Abha global airport in Asir province, which led to a temporary suspension of air traffic, and a second was approaching a "civilian object" in Jizan province, he said.
