Egypt condemns Houthi missile attack on Saudi Arabia

Egypt strongly condemned the Houthi ballistic missile attack on Saudi Arabia, an Egyptian foreign ministry statement said on Thursday.

Houthi militias fired several ballistic missiles towards several areas in Saudi Arabia from Yemen, including Riyadh. However, all missiles were intercepted and destroyed by the Saudi military.

Egypt’s foreign ministry said that the Egypt was standing in solidarity with Saudi Arabia, against all those attempting to destabilise it or threaten its peace and stability, state-owned daily Ahram Online reported.

The attack has made members of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition “more determined to restore legitimacy” in Yemen, the statement added, referring to the internationally recognised government of Yemen led by Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.
