Ten people were injured in two explosives-laden drone attacks by the Houthi militias at the airport in the southern Saudi city of Jazan late on Friday and early on Saturday, the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen said.


Six Saudis, three Bangladeshi nationals and one Sudanese were injured in the first attack, Saudi state media said, citing Coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Malki.


Some of the airport's facade windows were shattered in the attack, the spokesman said.


A second explosives-laden drone was intercepted early on Saturday, the Coalition said.


Air traffic in the airport was normal, state TV said.
