A Houthi cruise missile fell on the arrivals hall of Saudi Arabia's Abha International Airport, injuring 26 civilians, the Arab Coalition said on Wednesday.
Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al Maliki said the missile hit the airport at 2:21am local time, according to a statement cited by the Saudi Press Agency.
Houthi-backed Al Masirah TV made the announcement and claimed the rebels had targeted the airport with a cruise missile.
Flights out of the airport resumed around four hours after the incident, although an EgyptAir flight was cancelled.
Abha, capital of Asir province, lies high in the lush Asir mountains and is a popular getaway for Saudis seeking to escape the searing summer heat of Riyadh or Jeddah. Those injured are of different nationalities, Col Al Malki said, including three women.
This attack also proves the terrorist militia's acquisition of new special weapons, the continuation of the Iranian regime's support and practice of cross-border terrorism, and the continued violation of relevant UN Security Council resolutions, including Resolution 2216 and Resolution 2231.
The colonel also said this attack could amount to a war crime, as it targetted civilians rather than military forces, and pledged the coalition will carry out a "firm" response. He said the coalition would take stern action to deter the rebels and protect civilians.
The rebels said they had targeted the King Khalid airbase near Khamis Mushait. The city, to the east of Abha, is home to a major airbase that has been one of the main launchpads for the coalition's bombing campaign in Yemen.
The attack came after Saudi Arabia's air defence forces had intercepted two drones launched by insurgents from the Ansar Allah movement, part of the Houthis, on its military air base on the country's southern border.
