GCC Secretary General condemns the Houthi attack on Saudi Samtah
Dr. Nayef Falah Mubarak Al-Hajraf, Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council, condemned the terrorist attack on the Samtah governorate in Saudi Arabia’s Jazan region last Saturday, which resulted in the death of two people and the injury of seven others as a result of the fall of a Houthi projectile.
According to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Al-Hajraf emphasized that the Houthi militia’s continued immoral practices of attempting to target civilian objects constitutes a war crime by deliberately targeting civilians and protected civilian objects with special protection under international humanitarian law and its rules and that targeting them systematically and deliberately constitutes a flagrant violation of international norms and laws.
Al-Hajraf reaffirmed the GCC states’ solidarity with the Kingdom against everything that threatens its security, stability, and territorial integrity, emphasizing the need for the international community to take immediate and decisive action to stop these aggressive acts targeting vital and civil facilities as well as the Kingdom’s security.
Lieutenant-Colonel Muhammad Al-Hammadi, the official spokesman for the General Directorate of Saudi Civil Defense, announced on Friday the death of two people and the injury of seven others as a result of the fall of a hostile projectile launched by the Houthi militia from within Yemeni territory towards the Samtah governorate in the Jazan region.
