UAE Condemns Houthi Militia’s Attempts Targeting Saudi Arabia with Ballistic Missile, Drones

Abu Dhabi, The United Arab Emirates has strongly condemned and denounced the Iran-backed terrorist Houthi militia's systematic attempts of targeting civilians and civil objects in Khamis Mushait, Najran and the Southern Region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by launching a ballistic missile and booby-trapped drones which were successfully intercepted and destroyed by the Coalition Forces to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen.

In a statement issued by its Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the UAE affirmed that these 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 recurrent acts, which target critical infrastructure and threaten the security and stability of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as global energy supplies and the economy. The Ministry also emphasized that the continued threat of these attacks over the recent days is a grave escalation that represents new evidence of these militias' attempts to undermine security and stability in the region.

UAE renewed its full solidarity with Saudi Arabia over these subversive terrorist attacks and reiterated its stand against all threats for all measures taken by Saudi Arabia to maintain the safety and security of its citizens and residents.

The statement stressed that the security of the UAE and Saudi Arabia are indivisible, and that any threat facing Saudi Arabia is considered a threat to the security and stability of the UAE.
