Houthis' attempt to hit Khamis Mushait with armed drone strongly condemned
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 11 - 06 - 2021

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.
The coalition in a statement said it was "taking operational measures to protect civilians and civilian facilities from hostile attacks."
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 affirmed Bahrain's stand and full solidarity with Saudi Arabia and vowed support for the measures it takes to protect its security, stability, and territorial integrity.
The United Arab Emirates issued a statement, reiterating that these recurrent systematic terror attacks by the Houthis reflect their blatant disregard for the international community and all international laws and norms.
The UAE's foreign ministry urged the international community to take an immediate and decisive stance to stop these recurrent acts, which target critical infrastructure and threaten the security and stability of the Kingdom, as well as global energy supplies.
The ministry also emphasized in the statement 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.
In a statement, Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Yousef Al-Othaimeen affirmed the support of the organization for all the measures taken by Saudi Arabia to protect its lands, security and stability.
He stressed that the OIC condemns the terrorist practices committed by the Houthi militia and those who stand behind it and provide it with money and weapons, considering that these acts are "war crimes."
