SANAA, Yemen, Yemen's Houthi rebels' military spokesman, vowed more painful strikes against Saudi Arabia, hours after the rebels claimed responsibility of multiple drone strikes on two Saudi airports.
We reaffirm that our future strikes against Saudi Arabia will be more painful, if the kingdom continues its escalation and aggression war on Yemen, Yahya Sarea, the spokesman, was quoted as saying.
Our attacks on Saudi airports of Abha and Jizan came, in response to the aggressors' (Saudi-led coalition forces) crimes, he said.
Earlier in the day, the Houthis claimed responsibility for multiple bomb-laden drone attacks on the two Saudi regional airports, saying that, they targeted hangars of the aircraft and other military facilities at both airports.
Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television reported that a Syrian citizen was killed in the Houthi drone attack, on the parking yard of Abha airport, while at least eight others, including Saudi residents, were wounded.
Abha airport is located in Asir province, while Jizan airport is located in the neighbouring province of Jizan.
The attacks were the latest in a series of missile and drone strikes, launched by the Iran-allied Shiite Houthi rebels against the Saudi regional airports.
Saudi Arabia has been leading a coalition to fight in Yemen for more than four years, in support of the exiled Yemeni government, against the Iran-allied Houthis.
