Houthi terrorists’ ballistic missile attacks on Saudi Arabia draw wide condemnation
The ballistic missile attacks launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia against Saudi cities and civilian targets on Saturday evening have drawn wide condemnations.
The speaker of the Cairo-based Arab Parliament Mishaal al-Salami said the attacks –foiled by Saudi air defenses over the capital Riyadh and city of Jizan – are “a striking violation of the UN charters, a definance of the international community … and refutes the Houthi claim of accepting UN escalation calls.”
The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation blamed the Houthis for these “terrorist attacks” which come at a time the whole world is united countering the global hazard of coronavirus. He called on the UN Security Council “to assume its responsibility in countering these terror acts.”
The GCC in a press statement called on the international community to assume its responsibility in standing firmly to the Houthi “terror acts” that seek to “destabilize the region.”
The State of Kuwait said “this cowardly attack does not only target the security of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and safety of its people but the security of the whole Gulf region.”
