In response to media queries on the missile attacks in Saudi Arabia, the Official Spokesperson said :

”We strongly condemn the renewed missile attacks targeting civilian areas in the direction of Riyadh and other cities of Saudi Arabia. We are deeply concerned about the escalating situation threatening the lives of innocent civilians. We reiterate our resolve to fight terrorism and violence in all its forms.”

Saudi Arabia has said that one person was killed after seven missiles were fired from Yemen by the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels on Sunday.

The missiles were fired at four targets, including the capital city of Riyadh, and all were intercepted and destroyed, said Saudi coalition forces spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki in a statement. Fragments from the intercepted missiles killed an Egyptian resident, the statement added.

War of words:

Two months ago, Riyadh international airport was targeted by a missile fired by the Houthis, and in this context, the Arab League issued a decision condemning this act and standing by the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The next day, the Arab League was described as a rotten institution by the president of Iran, stressing that this surprising statement shows that the league is an entity that maintains the interests of the Arabs.
