GCC- Riyadh
HE Dr. Nayef Falah Mubarak Al-Hajraf, Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council, condemned the attacks carried out by the Houthi militia today by launching four ballistic missiles and seven booby-trapped Drones, targeting civilians and civilian objects.
His Excellency affirmed that these repeated, deliberate hostilities by the Houthis against civilian targets inside Yemen and the neighboring countries represent a flagrant violation of international laws and norms.
His Excellency condemned Iran's provision of these weapons to the Houthis in violation of the embargo imposed by Security Council Resolution 2216, which poses a threat to the security and stability of the region, and hinders a political solution to the crisis in Yemen.
The Secretary General praised the efficiency and preparedness of the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces, which were able to intercept and destroy ballistic missiles and booby-trapped drones before they reached their targets. He stressed that the Gulf Cooperation Council stand by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and brotherly Yemen, calling on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities and stand firmly in the face of these ongoing attempts of the Houthis and those behind them to undermine security and peace in the region.
