SANAA, July 28 (Xinhua) -- Yemen's Houthis said they launched an attack on Najran airport in the southwest of Saudi Arabia overnight, using bomb-laden drones, the group's al-Masirah TV reported early on Sunday.

The attack targeted "military facilities in the airport," the television said, citing a statement by a Houthi military spokesman.

There has been no confirmation from Saudi Arabia yet on the attack.

Houthis have recently stepped up drone attacks on Saudi Arabia, but most of the drones were intercepted by the kingdom's air forces.

Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab military coalition against Iran-allied Houthis in Yemen for more than four years in support of the exiled internationally-recognized government of Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. Enditem
