SANAA, June 9 (Xinhua) -- Yemen's Shiite Houthi rebels said they launched a drone attack on a military airport in Saudi Arabia's border city of Jizan on Sunday.

"The attack targeted a hangar containing Saudi military drones," the rebels said in a statement aired by the group's TV al-Masirah.
There were no immediate comments from the Saudi-led coalition on the alleged attack.
Saudi Arabia has recently intercepted drones mainly targeting its border cities in an escalation with the Iran-allied Houthis.
The kingdom has been leading the war in Yemen against the militias for the past four years in support of the internationally-recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
