Pakistan condemns Houthi missile fire towards Makkah

Pakistan condemns Houthi missile fire towards Makkah

Pakistan condemned on Tuesday the firing of two ballistic missiles by Yemeni Houthis towards Makkah which were intercepted by Saudi Arabia.

The Foreign Office hit out at the aggression and commended the Saudi defence forces for intercepting the missiles.

“Islamabad reaffirms its solidarity with Saudi Arabia and reiterates its support against any threat to the security of the Kingdom,” the communique read.

Riyadh had intercepted on Monday the missiles in Makkah fired by the Iran-aligned fighters.

The foiled strike came at a time of heightened tensions between Tehran and Gulf Arab states and a roughly four-year conflict in Yemen largely seen as a proxy war between the two sides.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are leading a Western-backed coalition of Muslim states that intervened in Yemen in 2015 to try to restore the internationally recognised government ousted from power in Sanaa by the Houthis in late 2014.
