Abu Dhabi: The UAE has expressed its strong denunciation and condemnation of the attempts by the Iran-backed terrorist Houthi militia to target civilians in a systematic and deliberate manner in Khamis Mushait, Saudi Arabia, with booby-trapped drones, which were intercepted by Coalition forces.

The UAE affirmed, in a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC), that these recurrent terrorist attacks by the Houthi group reflects its blatant disregard for the international community and all international laws and norms.

The Ministry urged the international community to take an immediate and decisive stand to stop these recurrent attacks, which threaten the security and stability of the Kingdom, international energy supplies and the stability of the global economy, stressing that the recurrence of these attacks in recent days is a grave escalation that represents new evidence of these militias' attempts to undermine security and stability in the region.

The Ministry renewed the UAE's full solidarity with the Kingdom regarding these terror attacks, standing shoulder to shoulder with it against every threat to its security and stability and supporting it in all measures it takes to preserve its security and the safety of its citizens and residents.

"The security of the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is indivisible, and any threat facing the Kingdom is considered a threat to the UAE's security and stability," the Ministry concluded.
