Ambassador Khalid meets Saudi soldiers receiving treatment in US

  • Prince Khalid bin Salman met with Saudi soldiers who were being treated for injuries in the US
  • The Saudi ambassador praised the soldiers as “heros” for defending the Kingdom

Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman, met on Saturday with Saudi soldiers who were being treated for injuries in the US.

The Saudi ambassador praised the soldiers as “heros” for defending the Kingdom against the “Iran backed Houthi terrorist.”

Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab coalition fighting the Houthi militia, who overthrew the democratically elected, internationally recognized government of Yemen in 2014.

During the Yemen conflict, the militia has targeted Saudi Arabia using ballistic missiles, which United Nations investigations have found to have been manufactured by Iran.
