Islamic associations condemn Houthi missile attacks on Saudi Arabia

  • The criminal aggression of the Houthis isn’t approved by any religion

JEDDAH: Islamic associations in Sweden, India and Cameroon have written to the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, condemning the targeting of various Saudi Arabian cities by the ballistic missiles of the Houthi militia, and praising the Saudi defense forces for intercepting and destroying them.
Hussein Al-Daoudi, chairman of the Scandinavian message association in Sweden, deplored the reckless missile attacks against civilians in Riyadh, Khamis Mushait, Najran and Jazan but thanked God that all of the missiles were destroyed.
The association condemned this ugly act, saying it was against all religious teachings and international laws. It called for the international community to stand against this “gang” which doesn’t respect simple humanitarian rules, and confirmed its support to Saudi Arabia and King Salman for spreading moderation, world peace and dialogue.
Sheikh Salaheddine Makboul Ahmed, the head of Ahl Al-Hadith association in India (formerly Al-Waqfiya), supported the deeds of Saudi Arabia in putting an end to the aggression against Yemen and restoring its safety and security.
Sheikh Nsango Abdo, the head of the Cameroonian Cultural Association, said that the criminal aggression of the Houthis isn’t approved by any religion, and is against any logic.

Abdulrahman bin Ahmed bin Hamdan Al-Harbi was appointed the governor of the General Authority for Foreign Trade following a royal decree issued on March 23. 

Previously, he had been the deputy minister of foreign trade since 2016. 

He has held many leadership positions in the financial and private banking sector, the most recent of which was serving as the chief executive officer of Emirates NBD KSA. 

Al-Harbi is a member of several boards of directors as well as local and international committees, including the board of directors of the Saudi Export Development Authority and the General Authority for Small and Medium Enterprises. He is also the chairman of the Investment Committee, and represents the Kingdom on the board of directors of the Islamic Center for Trade Development.

He holds a bachelor of science in management information systems from the business school at the King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in Dhahran. 

The General Authority for Foreign Trade aims to enhance the Kingdom’s international commercial and investment activities. It was established to consolidate Saudi Arabia’s position as a region and global trade hub.

One of the key goals of the authority is to ensure smooth access for Saudi non-oil exports in target markets by removing obstacles.
