Pakistan has noted with serious concern the drone attack by Houtis on the Saudi city of Abha, that took place yesterday. We commend the government of Saudi Arabia, especially the Royal Defence Forces, for timely intercepting and destroying the drone before it could cause any serious damage. The news of injuries to Saudis and other expatriates, as well as damage to properties, as a result of falling debris of this drone remains a matter of concern. We pray for early recovery of the injured.
The Government of Pakistan reiterates its full support and solidarity with the leadership, the Government and people of Saudi Arabia against any threats to its territorial integrity and Harmain Shareefaen. Such attacks, targeting the unarmed civilian population, are a clear violation of international law and pose a serious challenge to regional peace and security. We, condemn them in the strongest terms and stand in solidarity with the Saudi government in fighting terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
