Iran got warning from Saudi Arabia over airport attack that injured 26 on Wednesday.
Riyadh accused Tehran on Thursday of ordering a Yemeni rebel missile strike which wounded 26 people at a Saudi airport and warned of “grave consequences”.
“The continuation of the Iranian regime’s aggression and reckless escalation, whether directly or through its militias, will result in grave consequences,” deputy defence minister Prince Khaled bin Salman tweeted.
The targeting of Abha Airport by Iranian-backed Houthi militia and injuring innocent civilians of various nationalities, is a continuation of their immoral and criminal behavior that is in line with the malign behavior of their patrons. I pray for a quick recovery for the wounded.
“We will confront the Houthi militia’s crimes with unwavering resolve,” said Prince Khaled, a son of King Salman.
“Their targeting of a civilian airport exposes to the world the recklessness of Iran’s escalation and the danger it poses to regional security and stability.”
