Yemeni Houthi rebels claim fresh drone attack at Saudi air base
Yemen's Houthi rebels said they launched a drone attack at a Saudi air base early on Thursday, Xinhua reported citing Houthi-run al-Masirah TV.
The attack targeted King Khaled Air Base in the border city of Khamis Mushait in southwestern Saudi Arabia, said the television.
However, Turki Al Maliki, spokesman of the Saudi-led coalition involved in the Yemeni war, denied the reports that King Khaled Air Base was targeted by the Houthis' bomb-laden drone.
The drone was intercepted and destroyed without causing casualties, he was quoted by the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television as saying.
