A Syrian resident was killed and 21 civilians injured in a terrorist attack carried out by Houthi militias on Abha International Airport in southern Saudi Arabia, the Arab Coalition said on Sunday.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said the attack by the Iran-backed insurgents was carried out at 9:10 pm.

The victims included women and children from different nationalities, he said.

Flights resumed at the airport, where operations were now running normally.

Earlier this month, a Houthi missile hit Abha airport in a strike that wounded 26 people.
