The United Nations has expressed its concern over the terrorist attack carried out by the alleged Iran-backed Houthi militia on Abha International Airport in Saudi Arabia.

In a press conference, UN spokesman Farhan Haq described the attack as a serious threat to regional security and undermining the political process in Yemen led by the United Nations.

The Official Spokesman for the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, Colonel Turki Al Malki, stated that a hostile projectile fired by the Houthi militia yesterday hit the arrivals hall at Abha International Airport through which thousands of passengers of different nationalities pass daily.

The Saudi Press Agency, SPA, quoted Colonel Al Maliki as saying that a total of 26 passengers of different nationalities were injured by the projectile, including three women and two Saudi children.

Eight people with moderate injuries were transferred to a hospital for treatment, while 18 were treated at the site for minor injuries. There was also some physical damage to the airport lounge.
