A Yemeni rebel attack on a civilian airport in southern Saudi Arabia killed a Syrian national and wounded seven civilians on Sunday, a Riyadh-led coalition said, the latest in a series of strikes on the site.
"A terrorist attack by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia took place at Abha international airport, through which thousands of civilian passengers... pass daily," the military coalition said.
"A Syrian national died and seven civilians were wounded," it added, in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.
The coalition did not provide details on how the airport was attacked, but Iran-aligned Houthi rebels have repeatedly struck the civilian facility this month with drones and missiles.
The UAE has strongly condemned the Houthi terrorist attack on Saudi Arabia’s Abha International Airport.
In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) condemned the terrorist attack which, it said, flies in the face of all international laws and conventions.
"The UAE strongly condemns this terrorist act and labels it as a new evidence of the Iranian-backed Houthi militias' hostile and terrorist tendencies to undermine security and stability in the region."
"The UAE re-iterates its solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against any threat to its security and stability and supports all measures taken by the Saudi government to maintain the security of its citizens and residents," the statement continued.
"The security of the UAE and of the Kingdom is indivisible," it noted, adding, "any threat or danger to Saudi Arabia's security is considered a threat to UAE's security and stability."
The Ministry expressed condolences to the family of the Syrian victim and wished a quick recovery to the injured.
A spokesman for the coalition said the drones had been fired by the Houthis towards civilian targets in Khamis Mushait in southern Saudi Arabia, close to Abha.
