Riyadh, Oct 10, 2020, SPA -- The Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for Arab States, Dr. Nayef Falah M. Al-Hajraf condemned Houthi militias for their ongoing continuation in committing terrorist acts systemically and deliberately by targeting civilians and civilian objects in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the latest of which was the deliberate launch of an explosive-laden drone to target civilian objects and civilians in the southern region today, on Saturday morning.
He emphasized that these repeated, systematic and deliberate attacks by Houthi militias towards civilian objects and civilians in the liberated Yemeni governorates or in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia confirm the intentions of those militias and their supporters and their preference for war options, their unwillingness in putting an end to the Yemeni crisis and the suffering of the Yemeni people through the political solution according to the terms of references being represented by the Gulf initiative and its executive mechanism as well as the outcomes of the comprehensive national dialogue conference in addition to the Security Council Resolution 2216.

Moreover, Dr. Al-Hajraf stressed that these terrorist acts not only target the security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia only, but also the security and stability of the Gulf region as it represents a flagrant violation of international laws and norms that prohibit the targeting of civilians and civilian objects.
He also praised the efficiency and readiness of the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces, which managed to intercept the drone before it reached its target, reaffirming the GCC's full support for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for all measures taken to protect and preserve the security and safety of its citizens and residents.
GCC Secretary General called on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities and stand firmly against Houthi militias in their continuous attempts to destabilize security and peace in the region.
