UAE condemns Houthi's attempted attack on Saudi airport


The UAE has strongly condemned and denounced Houthi attempts to attack Abha International Airport in Saudi Arabia with a bomb-laden drone which was intercepted by the Coalition Forces.

In a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the UAE reaffirmed that targetting the airport, which resulted in scores of injuries among civilians, is "a cowardly terrorist act that requires a response against threats to the security, safety and lives of civilians and visitors".

The statement continued: "It is a war crime that requires the community to support all necessary measures by the Saudi-led Coalition to stop the Houthi attacks on civilian objects and deter their threats to countries in the region."

The UAE has renewed its full solidarity with the Kingdom over the attacks and reiterated its stand against all threats to the Kingdom's security, stability, and the safety of its citizens and residents and that any threat facing the Kingdom is considered a threat to the security and stability of the UAE.
