Bangladesh has strongly condemned the drone attacks targeting Abha, the South-western city of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, by Houthi rebels on February 10 and 17.
The attack hit a parked commercial aircraft causing damage on February 10, but the second attack was intercepted and destroyed by the Joint Coalition Forces before hitting targets.
Following the attempted attack on Riyadh, the Arab Coalition also confirmed that it was monitoring the launching of a number of explosive drones by the Houthis in Yemen, and said it had intercepted and destroyed one targeting Jazan and at least four others targeting the Kingdom's southern cities.
"These unprovoked acts by the Houthi rebels undermine the peace and security in the region," said a foreign ministry statement yesterday.
It said Bangladesh calls for immediate cessation of such attacks and reiterates solidarity with the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the face of such aggression.
Bangladesh also expressed full support to the Kingdom against any threat to its security and territorial integrity.
