Pentagon Committed to Support Saudi Arabia in its Defense

The US opposes the attacks on Saudi Arabia and remains committed to helping protect the Kingdom, the press secretary of the Pentagon said recently.

John Kirby, speaking at a press briefing, said that Houthi attacks against the Kingdom “violate international law and weaken attempts in the region to increase peace and stability.”

“We condemn attacks against Saudi Arabia and as the president himself has made clear, we remain committed to helping Saudi Arabia defend itself,” Kirby added.

“We are going to continue to work together and to look for better ways to defend the Kingdom from these external threats while revitalizing diplomacy in the Yemen conflict,” the press secretary said.

His comments come a week after a Houthi attack on Abha airport which resulted in a passenger plane catching fire and firing various drones during the course of the week targeting Saudi Arabia.
