Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement said it launched a drone attack on a Patriot missile battery in the airport of the Saudi city of Najran near the Yemeni border, ONAreports citing the group’s Al-Masirah TV.

The Houthis, who ousted the Saudi-backed Yemeni president from power in the capital Sanaa in 2014, have stepped up missile and drone attacks on Saudi in the past ten days in a resurgence of tactics that had largely subsided since late last year amid United Nations-led peace efforts.

The group claimed responsibility for last week’s armed drone strikes on oil assets in Saudi Arabia and on Sunday said they would attack 300 vital military targets in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
