In a statement issued by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs today, Egypt affirmed its firm stance supporting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in addressing these terrorist acts targeting civilian areas in the south of the country, affirming its support for the measures taken by the Kingdom to preserve its security, stability and safety of citizens and expats against these heinous attacks which represent a violation of the rules of international law and a threat to the security and safety of civil aviation, air navigation and stability in the region.

The United Arab Emirates has strongly condemned and denounced the terrorist Houthi militias’ attempts to attack the Abha Airport with two explosive drones, which were intercepted by the Coalition Forces, resulting in injuries and damage to a civilian aircraft.
