Pakistan has condemned the missile attack on Saudi Arabia by Yemen,s Iran-backed Houthi rebels.
According to spokesman of Pakistan Foreign Office, the attack was successfully intercepted by the Saudi led Coalition, by the grace of God Almighty, before it could cause any damage. This was the third missile attack targeted at the Kingdom from Yemen in less than two months.
“The increasing frequency and ferocity of the missile attacks, targeted at innocent civilians by Houthi rebels, pose a threat to regional peace and security and is therefore, highly condemnable,” Dr. Faisal said.
Pakistan strongly believes that a political solution to the ongoing Yemen crisis is the only way to ensure regional peace and stability. Pakistan stands firmly with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in confronting terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
Pakistan reaffirms unequivocal support for the Kingdom and reiterates that in case of any violation of its territorial integrity or any threat to Harmain Sharifain, Pakistan will stand shoulder to shoulder with the government and people of Saudi Arabia, the spokesman said.
The Houthis’ Al Masirah TV had reported on Tuesday that a Burkan H2 ballistic missile had targeted a meeting at the al-Yamama Palace in the Saudi capital.
