There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

However, earlier this month, Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthis have attacked Abha international airport with an explosive-laden drone injuring four civilians.

Since January, Yemen’s Houthis have ramped up their attacks on the Kingdom and launched dozens of cross-border aerial attacks on Saudi Arabia. The Iran-backed militia targeted civilian areas and energy facilities in the Kingdom with explosive-laden drones and ballistic missiles.
