GCC Secretary General Condemns Houthi's Continuous Launching of Ballistic Missiles, Bomb-laden Drones towards Saudi Arabia


(MENAFN- Saudi Press Agency) Riyadh, September 05, 2021, SPA -- Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for Arab States Dr. Nayef Falah Mubarak Al-Hajraf condemned today the Houthi militia's continuous launching of ballistic missiles and bomb-laden drones in a systematic and deliberate manner towards the Eastern Province, Jazan and Najran, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to target civilians and civilian facilities, in a flagrant violation of international norms and laws.
The Secretary General commended the vigilance of Saudi Air Defense Forces that intercepted and destroyed three ballistic missiles and three bomb-laden drones launched by the Houthi militia on Saturday, where the interception caused debris to scatter across the (Dahyat Al-Dammam) neighborhood, which resulted in the injury of two Saudi female and male children, and minimal damages to 14 houses.
Dr. Nayef Al-Hajraf reiterated the GCC states' solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against whatever targets its security, stability and territorial integrity, stressing the need for the international community to take immediate and decisive measures to stop these aggressive acts targeting civilian facilities as well as the security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
