Bangladesh condemns Houthi attack on southern Saudi Arabia

Bangladesh has condemned the recent use of explosive-laden drones, launched by Yemen’s Houthi rebels, against the southern part of Saudi Arabia.

This attack was launched on January 17, with an escalation of hostility and aggression of the Houthi militias, adding to further tension in the region, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) Wednesday.

The recent sporadic drone attacks targeting innocent civilians and civilian establishments both in Saudi Arabia and the UAE constitute an unlawful and cowardly act of terrorism, it added.

Bangladesh denounced that such “deliberate and insensible acts are a flagrant violation of international law and norms of civilised behaviour.”

“The country remains steadfastly committed towards all efforts for maintenance of peace and stability in the region,” said the MoFA.
