Rabat, Rabi'II 2, 1439, Dec 20, 2017, SPA -- The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) strongly condemned the targeting of Riyadh by the Houthi militias in Yemen with a ballistic missile which was intercepted and destroyed.
In a statement to Saudi Press Agency (SPA), ISESCO Director General, Dr. Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri, said this criminal attack, perpetrated by the rebel Houthi militias jeopardizing the security and safety of citizens and civilian facilities in Riyadh, capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, was a despicable aggression prohibited by the international law that called for an international firm position against these terrorist militias and their supporters.
Dr. Altwaijri called for urgent international measures to stop such terrorist attacks and enable the internationally-recognized legitimate government to discharge its mission and restore peace and security in the Republic of Yemen.
