Arab countries condemns ‘dangerous’ attack against Saudi Arabia’s Abha airport
The Arab countries condemned on Wednesday the terrorist attack by the Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen against Saudi Arabia’s Abha International Airport.
Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa slammed the attack as a “dangerous escalation through Iranian weapons.”
He called for a “firm and clear international stance against Houthi terrorism and Iran’s support for it.”
Kuwait denounced the attack as a “dangerous escalation,” voicing its support to whatever measures Saudi Arabia takes in protecting its security and stability.
Egypt slammed the assault, saying attacks against airports are “flagrant violations of all international laws and norms.”
Its Foreign Ministry called on the international community to confront destabilizing terrorist acts.
The legitimate Yemeni government condemned the Abha attack, saying: “The Houthis only understand the language of weapons and forces.”
The Arab coalition and legitimacy have no choice but to resort to the military option to end the Houthi terrorism, said government spokesman Rajeh Badi.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the “criminal and dangerous” assault, saying Palestine stands by Saudi Arabia, its King, government and people in confronting such attacks.
The Saudi-led Arab coalition had announced earlier on Wednesday that a Houthi projectile targeted the Abha airport, leaving 26 people wounded.
