In a news statement, Al-Hajraf stressed that the repeated attacks launched by Houthis show a blatant challenge to the international community and a violation of all international laws and norms.
He called on the international community to take immediate and decisive stances to stop these repeated "terrorist" acts that target Saudi Arabia's civilian and vital facilities, and security and stability, according to the statement.
He lauded vigilance and efficiency of the Saudi-led coalition supporting legitimacy in Yemen and the success of the air defense forces to intercept these "terrorist" assaults launched by the militias.

He stressed that the "Kingdom's security is part and parcel of the GCC member states' security". (end) mdm.rj.hm
