Egypt has strongly condemned the Houthi attacks that targeted the eastern and southern regions of Saudi Arabia.
Its foreign ministry said in a statement: “Egypt expressed in the strongest terms its condemnation and denunciation of the attacks that targeted Saudi Arabia using a number of ballistic missiles; as well as the booby-trapped planes launched by the Houthi militia today; which the joint forces of the Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen were able to successfully intercept.”
The coalition; led by Saudi Arabia; announced the interception and destruction of three booby-trapped drones launched by the Houthi militia towards the southern region of Saudi Arabia on Saturday evening.

It stressed the “close connection between the national security of the two brotherly countries.”
Egypt also expressed “its support for the measures taken by Saudi Arabia to preserve its security; stability and territorial integrity in the face of these terrorist attacks; which represent a serious threat to security and stability in the region.”
