At least 26 injured in Yemeni rebel attack on SW Saudi Abha airport

Yemen’s Houthi rebels Wednesday launched a missile barrage on the airport of the southwestern Saudi hill resort town of Abha, injuring at least 26 civilians. One of the rockets smashed into the Arrivals Hall. Abha is a favorite getaway spot for Saudis from the sweltering summer heat in the cities.  Saudi officials are economical with the details of the attack, but local residents filmed the attack on video also showing Saudi air defenses attempting to down the multiple missiles.

    Hezzbollah COULD close any airport in Israel for a WHILE. That part is true. What holds them back is not Putin but the fear of Israeli retaliation. It is true that Putin would not lift a finger to save them from Israeli retaliation.
