The Yemeni army has struck Saudi facilities several times over the past week, with Abha international airport and an air base in the kingdom’s Asir province being the main target. Experts say these operations are just warning to the Saudi-led coalition of further and larger attacks. 

The Ansarullah movement has, time and again, warned Riyadh and its allies that those operations are the result of Saudi Arabia’s deadly aggression as well as its illegal detention of oil vessels which has exacerbated the humanitarian crisis in the country. 

The targeting of Saudi facilities coincides with the continuous advancement of the Yemeni army toward Marib, a city held by Saudi-backed forces in the north of Yemen. 

Observers say Saudi Arabia and its allies are the ones who launched the war on Yemenis in 2015 and the Yemeni army has the right to target invaders in self-defense as well as pressure them to release oil vessels and end their blockade of the war-ravaged nation.
