UAE condemns Houthi drone attack in Saudi Arabia

WAM

The UAE has condemned an attempted attack by Houthi militia in Khamis Mushait in Saudi Arabia.

The group launched an explosive-laden drone, which was intercepted and destroyed by the Coalition Forces.

In a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) on Saturday, the UAE reiterated that these continued terror attacks by the Houthis reflect their blatant disregard for the international community and all international laws and norms.

The Ministry urged the international community to take an immediate and decisive stance to stop these repeated acts targeting the Kingdom's vital installations and civilian facilities and security.

It stressed that the continuation of these attacks in recent days is a grave escalation and new evidence of these militias' aim 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 stance against all threats to the Kingdom's security, stability, and the safety of its citizens and residents.

MoFAIC also confirmed that the security of the UAE and that of Saudi Arabia are indivisible, and any threat faced by the Kingdom is considered a threat to the security and stability of the UAE.
