Cairo:

Ten people were injured in an explosives-laden drone strike at King Abdullah Airport in the Saudi southern city of Jizan on Friday, the state news agency (SPA) said, citing a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition.

Six Saudis, three Bangladeshi nationals and one Sudanese were injured. A coalition spokesman said some windows of the airport were also broken in the attack.

The Saudi-led military coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015, backing forces from the ousted government of President Abdrabuh Mansour Hadi and fighting an Iran-aligned Houthi group.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility by the Houthis, but the group regularly launches drone and missile attacks targeting the Gulf Kingdom.
