US State Department: Attempts to attack Saudi Arabia are inconsistent with international law.
The US and Great Britain affirmed that they stand with Saudi Arabia against anyone who tries to harm its security, expressing their strong condemnation of the Houthi militia’s attempt to target civilians in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.
On Sunday, the State Department condemned the recent attempts to attack Riyadh, noting that the attempts to attack Saudi Arabia target civilians.
The US State Department said, “We will help our Saudi partner against those who try to target its security,” and added, “We will work to hold accountable those who try to undermine stability in Saudi Arabia.” And Washington confirmed that the attempts to attack Saudi Arabia are contrary to international law.
The British Foreign Office also condemned, in a statement, the attempt to target the Saudi capital, Riyadh.
The ministry stressed that the attempt to attack the capital, Riyadh, is a matter of great concern, noting that it stands with Saudi Arabia against anyone who tries to undermine its security.
It is reported that Saudi air defenses intercepted a missile fired by the Houthi militia on Saturday towards Riyadh. The Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen announced the interception and destruction of an air target launched by the Houthi militia towards the city of Riyadh.
The coalition had announced a day earlier that it had thwarted two terrorist operations that the Houthi militia had attempted to carry out, and explained that an explosive Houthi boat had been intercepted and destroyed in the south of the Red Sea, as well as the destruction of a outhi car bomb that was heading towards Saudi Arabia.
It is noteworthy that the coalition and the Yemeni government have repeatedly confirmed that the Houthi violations pose a threat to international security and navigation. They also repeatedly warned against militias attempting to target civilians, stressing at the same time that they are continuing to deter the crimes of terrorist militias.
A week ago, the coalition also announced the interception and destruction of three booby-trapped drones launched towards the Kingdom by the Houthi coup militia. They warned at the time that Hodeidah had become the center for launching explosive drones and hostile and terrorist attacks, stressing that the militia continued to violate international humanitarian law and the Stockholm Agreement.
It is noteworthy that a report by the American Newsweek magazine stated a few days ago that Iran had deployed “Shahid-136” drones, also called “suicide aircraft.”
