Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kingdom of Bahrain strongly condemns Iran-backed Houthi militia targeting of Abha Int. Airport in brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Bahrain strongly condemns and denounces the Iranian-backed Yemeni Houthi militia’s attempt to target Abha International Airport in the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through booby-trapped drones, in a cowardly terrorist act that targeted the lives of safe civilians and aimed to destroy civilian facilities, which is considered a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law.
The Ministry praises the vigilance and readiness of the coalition forces that intercepted and destroyed the drone, and renews the firm supportive position of the Kingdom of Bahrain to the efforts of the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to confront all those who attempt to destabilize its security and stability and threaten the lives of civilians, citizens and residents. The Ministry also reiterates its full stance with the KSA in the deterrence measures it takes to address such terrorist aggressive acts in all forms.
