King Salman vows support to Nigeria’s fight against terror

JEDDAH: Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman has pledged support for the Nigerian government’s fight against terrorist groups.
In a phone call to the country’s President Mohammed Buhari, the king condemned the terrorists who had recently launched attacks in Nigeria, according to a Saudi Press Agency report on Friday.
King Salman told Buhari that such “criminal acts” were denounced by Islam and that the Kingdom rejected any foreign intervention in Nigeria, which would destabilize the country’s security and stability, the report stated.
The king praised Nigeria for joining the 34-nation alliance aimed at fighting terrorist groups across the Middle East and the world; while Buhari reportedly thanked the Saudi monarch for his support, and said he would soon visit the Kingdom.

JEDDAH: King Salman Relief and Humanitarian Aid Center (KSRelief) has distributed 2,000 bags of wheat to displaced people from the western coast of Hodeida governorate to Aden as part of welfare operations in Yemen.
Yemen’s Minister of Local Administration and Higher Relief Committee chairman Abdul Raqeeb Fatah said KSRelief was seen as a beacon for humanitarian work.

The Yemeni government condemned the silence of the UN and the international community on abuses committed by Iranian-backed Houthi militia against people in the Al-Hima area of Taiz governorate.
Rebels had continued indiscriminate shelling of Hima’s villages, forcing people from their homes, Fatah said. Fatah said the militia’s crimes in Taiz districts were contrary to international law. He called on the global community and humanitarian organizations to take a firm position on all Houthi crimes.
