Saudi Arabia’s crown prince arrives in Bahrain, holds talks with King Hamad

AL-MANAMA: Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrived in Bahrain’s capital Manama on Sunday night for the second leg of his Arab tour. King Hamad received him in Sakhir Palace, Bahraini state television reported.

Following his visit to the UAE, the crown prince sent a cable of thanks to UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan. 

In his cables, Prince Mohammed said the “visit to our second country, the United Arab Emirates, comes within the framework of the distinguished and special fraternal relations that bind our two countries and brotherly peoples, and the common desire to deepen cooperation in all fields under the leadership of King Salman,” reported the Saudi Press Agency.

He also congratulated Abu Dhabi crown prince on the successful organization of the Formula One Grand Prix at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.

During the visit, the Saudi crown prince met with Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, on the sidelines of the 10th Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Houthis targetted civilian facility in Najran with an explosives-laden drone, says Arab Coalition

  • Houthis also fired two ballistic missiles toward the holy city of Makkah and Jeddah on Monday

RIYADH: Houthi militants had tried to hit a civilian facility in Saudi Arabia's southern border province of Najran with a drone carrying explosives, the Arab Coalition supporting Yemen's legitimate government said on Tuesday.
In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Colonel Turki Al-Maliki, the spokesman of the Saudi-led military coalition said the target was a vital facility.
"The Houthi-backed terrorist militia of Iran continues to carry out acts of terrorism that pose a real threat to regional and international security by targeting civilian objects and civilian facilities, as well as civilian citizens and residents of all nationalities," Al-Maliki said.

The statement did not mention casualties and gave no further details.

Earlier on Monday, Al-Maliki said Houthis fired two ballistic missiles toward the holy city of Makkah and Jeddah but both were shot down by Saudi air defense forces.

The Iran-backed Houthis have fired dozens of missiles at targets in Saudi Arabia, including the capital Riyadh, since the Arab Coalition intervened in 2015 to restore the government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, which was ousted in a Houthi coup.
