RIYADH — The Iran-backed Houthi militia’s attempt to target the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait with an explosive-laden drone has strongly been condemned. The drone attack launched from inside the Yemeni territories was successfully intercepted and destroyed by the Saudi-led Arab Coalition forces.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia’s regional allies denounced the attack in official statements.
Bahrain’s foreign ministry in a statement praised the vigilance and readiness of the coalition forces to support the legitimacy in Yemen in confronting these cowardly terrorist acts.
The Ministry urged the international community to take an immediate and decisive stance to stop these recurrent acts, which target critical infrastructure and threaten the Kingdom’s security and stability and global energy supplies. It also emphasised that the continued threat of these attacks over the recent period is a grave escalation that represents new evidence of these militias’ attempts to undermine security and stability in the region.
The UAE renewed its full solidarity with Saudi Arabia over these subversive terrorist attacks and reiterated its stand against all threats to the Kingdom’s security and stability. The UAE also underscored its support for all measures taken by Saudi authorities to maintain the safety and security of its citizens and residents.
The statement stressed that the security of the UAE and that of Saudi Arabia are indivisible and that any threat facing the Kingdom is considered a menace to the security and stability of the UAE.
