    CAIRO, Oct 24 (Reuters) - The military spokesman for Yemen's Houthi movement said in a tweet on Saturday it had targeted the Jizan and Abha airports and the Khamis Mushait base in Saudi Arabia with drones.

    "The hit was accurate," Yahia Sarea said on Twitter.

    Earlier on Saturday and on Friday, the Saudi coalition had said it had intercepted and destroyed three expolosive-laden drones from the Houthis aimed towards Saudi Arabia, without specifying the location. (Reporting by Hesham Abdul Khalek, writing by Nafisa Eltahir)
