A civilian plane was set on fire during an attack by Houthi rebels on an airport in Saudi Arabia on Feb 10th, Wednesday. The information was released by the Saudi-led coalition battling the rebels. The airport is located in the southern part of the country.
"A cowardly terrorist attack by the Houthi militia on Abha international airport... A civilian plane within the airport grounds was exposed to a fire which was brought under control," said a state-run Al-Ekhbariya television media channel.
The Houthi insurgency in Yemen, also known as the Houthi rebellion, Sa'dah War, or Sa'dah conflict, was a military rebellion pitting Zaidi Shia Houthis (though the movement also includes Sunnis) against the Yemeni military that began in Northern Yemen and has since escalated into a full-scale civil war.
The insurgency became a full-blown civil war with a major Saudi-led intervention in Yemen began March 2015. Since then, Saudi security forces have become a major target of the Houthi Rebels.
