SANAA, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Yemen's Houthi rebels said they launched multiple drone attacks on King Khalid Air Base in the southwest of Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, the Houthi-run al-Masirah TV reported.
"The attacks hit military targets in the air base in Khamis Mushait city," the television quoted a statement from the group's military spokesman Yahya Sarea as saying.
There was no immediate comment from Saudi Arabia on the alleged attack.
Earlier on the day, Houthis said they fired several ballistic missiles toward Najran airport in the southwest of the kingdom.
Houthis have recently stepped up cross-border missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia, but most of the attacks were intercepted by Saudi air defence 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 internationally-recognized government of Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
