OIC, Arab Parliament condemn latest Houthi drone attack toward Saudi Arabia

  • The attacks posed a threat to regional and international security and undermined political efforts to make the Stockholm Agreement succeed

RIYADH: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Friday condemned a Houthi drone attack targeted toward Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi-backed Arab coalition forces supporting the legitimate government in Yemen intercepted and shot down a bomb-laden unmanned aerial vehicle launched by the Iranian-backed militia group on Thursday.

OIC Secretary-General Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen called for the full implementation of the Stockholm Agreement while condemning the Houthis’ continued use of Hodeidah governorate as a staging point for the launch of terrorist operations involving ballistic missiles and drones.

He said the attacks posed a threat to regional and international security and undermined political efforts to make the Stockholm Agreement succeed.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Arab Parliament, Dr. Mishaal bin Fahm Al-Salami, urged the international community to take a decisive stance against the Iranian regime which, he said, intentionally contravened UN Security Council resolutions by providing the Houthis with weapons and advanced military technology to target neighboring countries.
