Greece condemns drone attack against Saudi airport

drone attack Saudi Arabia

"Greece unequivocally condemns the new drone attacks targeting King Abdullah Airport in Saudi Arabia," the foreign ministry posted on Sunday on Twitter.

"We extend our sincere wishes for speedy recovery to the injured. Such actions that directly violate the rules of International Law and compromise regional stability cannot be tolerated," it added.

Ten people were injured in two explosives-laden drone attacks at King Abdullah airport in the southern Saudi city of Jizan late on Friday and early on Saturday, the Saudi-led coalition said.

The military coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015, backing forces of the ousted the internationally recognised President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi against the Houthi-led Ansarullah group.

Six Saudis, three Bangladeshi nationals and one Sudanese were injured in the first attack, Saudi state media said, citing a coalition spokesman.

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, without giving details on any injuries or damages.
