Published in The Saudi Gazette on 14 - 02 - 2021

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Secretary General Dr. Nayef Falah Mubarak Al-Hajraf condemned here Saturday the continuation of the Houthi militias committing terrorist acts in a systematic and deliberate manner to target civilian objects in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the latest being re-targeting of Abha International Airport through launching a bomb-laden UAV.
Al-Hajraf stressed that the aggression targeting Saudi Arabia represent flagrant violation of the international norms and laws, holding the militia and those behind it and provide it with money and weapons, fully accountable.
Al-Hajraf praised the vigilance and the efficiency of the Forces of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen as they managed to intercept the UAV, affirming that GCC is standing alongside of Saudi Arabia and supporting all measures it takes to maintain its security, stability and the safety of its citizens as well as the residents on its territories.
He called on the international community to firmly stand against the Houthi militias and those who stand behind them, in their ongoing attempts to destabilize security and peace, in the region.
The General Secretariat of the Arab Interior Ministers Council in Tunis also affirmed its strong condemnation and denunciation of the repeated terrorist operations and provocative attempts through which the Houthi militia seeks to target airports, civilian objects and vital installations and threaten international shipping routes, the last of which is its attempt to target Abha Airport with a bomb-laden UAV.
The General Secretariat praised the heroic roles played by Saudi forces and the coalition forces to defend Saudi Arabia's territories and confront all attempts to undermine its security, stability, and the safety of its citizens and expatriates.
In a statement, the General Secretariat renewed its solidarity with the Kingdom in the measures it takes to repel these attacks and protect its territories and facilities. The terrorist acts of this militia and those behind it are considered a undermining of the security and stability of the entire Arab region, the statement added.
Meanwhile, Bahrain too strongly denounced and disapproved Iran-backed terrorist Houthi militia's attempt to target Abha International Airport, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, by a bomb-laden UAV in a cowardly terrorist attack, targeting innocent people's lives and civil facilities, in a violation of the humanitarian international law.
The Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs hailed, in a statement, the bravery and readiness of the Forces of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, for intercepting the UAV and destroying it.
The Ministry reiterated, at the same time, Bahrain's permanent supporting stance for relentless efforts exerted by Saudi Arabia to counter these serious terrorist acts and anyone who tries to destabilize its security and stability, expressing its fully standing along the side of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in taking deterrent measures to confront heinous Houthi aggressions.
Tunisia too strongly condemned the grave attacks that infringe the sovereignty of Saudi Arabia in violation of the international law, following the recurrence of terrorist attacks targeting Abha Airport and the civil facilities, in the Kingdom.
In a statement issued today, the Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Tunisia has expressed its full solidarity with Saudi Arabia and permanently standing along its side to defend its interests, expressing its continuous support to Saudi Arabia against such hostile acts which pose serious threat to the security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the stability of the entire region.
The Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, in its statement, that Tunisia is sticking to the Arab ranks against the challenges facing the Arab and the Islamic nations, pointing out that Saudi Arabia is encountering, since a while, repeated aggressions from inside the Yemeni territories, the latest was targeting Abha International Airport, few days ago. — SPA
