The UAE has strongly condemned a militia attempt by Yemen’s Houthi rebels targeting civilian areas in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, through a missile intercepted by Saudi air defences on Saturday.

In a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the UAE renewed its full solidarity with the Kingdom regarding these cowardly terrorist attacks.

The statement emphasised that any threat to the Kingdom is considered by the state as a threat to its security and stability system.

The ministry said that the continuation of these attacks illustrates the nature of the danger facing the region from the Houthi rebels, and the militia's continued attempts to undermine the security and stability of the region.

Saudi Arabia has been embroiled in a years-long war against neighbouring Yemen’s Houthi rebels, who have held Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, since September 2014.
