On Thursday evening, Saudi Arabia’s representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Abdullah Al-Mouallimi, sent a message to the UN Security Council after the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia targeted Abha International Airport. The Kingdom reiterated its message to the Security Bureau regarding the continuation of military hostilities committed by the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia against Saudi Arabia, in flagrant violation of international law and Security Council resolutions.
Al-Mouallimi said in the message: “On February 10, 2021, Abha International Airport was targeted by an attack by the terrorist Houthi militia, which led to a fire in a civilian plane.”
Al-Muallimi described the terrorist act that targets civilian infrastructure and threatens innocent civilian travelers as a “heinous war crime”, calling for the Houthi militia to be held accountable in accordance with international humanitarian law. He stressed that the Kingdom will take all necessary measures to preserve its lands and preserve the safety of its citizens and residents, in accordance with its obligations under international laws.
He stressed that such terrorist acts carried out by the Houthis undermine the efforts of the United Nations to reach a comprehensive political solution in Yemen, and will lead to destabilization of regional security and international peace. He called on the Council to circulate this letter as an official document of the Security Council.
Saudi message to the Security Council:
Al-Houthi terrorism undermines peace efforts
– Hostilities lead to insecurity
Circulate the letter as an official document
