Saudi Press Agency said on Tuesday that Yemeni rebels have attacked Abha airport. At least nine civilians were wounded.

"The terrorist attack on Abha airport... led to the injury of nine civilians, including eight Saudi citizens and one carrying an Indian passport," the military coalition said.

The United Arab Emirates has strongly condemned the Houthi terrorist attack on Saudi Arabia’s Abha International Airport.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC), denounced the terrorist attack which contradicts all international laws and conventions.

"The security of the UAE and of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is indivisible," the statement noted, adding, "any threat or danger to the Kingdom's security is considered a threat to UAE's security and stability."

The Ministry wished a speedy recovery for all those injured in this terrorist act.
