Missile attack on Saudi airport wounds 26

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe arrives at the Palazzo Chigi to attend a meeting with Italy's Prime Minister

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said that at least 26 civilians were wounded in an attack on Saudi Arabia's Abha airport.

Twenty-six people have been injured after Yemeni rebels attacked an airport in Saudi Arabia.

Eight of those wounded at Abha airport on Wednesday were admitted to hospital, the coalition spokesman Turki al-Malki said.

Official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said that Saudi air defence forces on Monday intercepted two drones that targeted Khamis Mushait in the kingdom's south and caused no damage or casualties. He stated that the injured are of different nationalities, among them three women who are Yemeni, Saudi and Indian, and two Saudi children.

This attack also proves the terrorist militia's acquisition of new special weapons, the continuation of the Iranian regime's support and practice of cross-border terrorism, and the continued violation of relevant UN Security Council resolutions, including Resolution 2216 and Resolution 2231.

The incidents sparked fears of a Gulf war breaking out "by accident" with the USA and Iranian militaries on high alert amid high tensions between Washington and Tehran.

Mexico deal ‘significant win’ for U.S., Pompeo says
It's understandable that this is sensitive in Mexico, and that even if there is a secret deal, officials would try to obscure it. In a Twitter outburst late past year , Mr Trump likewise complained about wine trade.

The Houthi-run Masirah TV earlier said the Houthi group had launched a cruise missile attack on Abha airport, which is about 200 km (125 miles) north of the border with Yemen and serves domestic and regional routes.

The U.S. deployed B-52 bombers and an assault ship to bolster an aircraft carrier in the region.

Yemen, a small nation in the south of the Arabian peninsula, has been engulfed in an armed conflict between the government forces, led by President Abdrabuh Mansour Hadi, and the rebel Houthi movement for several years now.

According to the United Nations, 22 of the country's 29million people are in need of aid.

Saudi Arabia accused Iran of ordering the attack, a charge that Tehran denies.
