NNA – Saudi Arabia said Friday it had gradually resumed flights at its southern airports one day after suspending all traffic as it launched airstrikes against Houthi fighters in Yemen.

International and domestic flights to and from five airports in the south including Jizan and Wadi al-Dawaser had resumed at dawn Friday, the official Saudi press agency said quoting a statement by the General Authority of Civil Aviation.
