ISESCO condemns Houthi militias targeting of Riyadh with ballistic missile and commends the vigilance of Saudi Air Defense Forces

The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) condemned the firing of a ballistic missile at Riyadh by Houthi militias in Yemen, on Saturday, while commending the Saudi Air Defense Forces for intercepting and destroying it without casualties.

In this regard, ISESCO Director General, Dr Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri, casted the Houthi militias’ attack as a criminal act that targeted the security and safety of citizens and civil facilities, and a abominable aggression prohibited by international law.

On this occasion, ISESCO urged the international community to urgently take the necessary measures to free Yemen from terrorist Houthi militias, enable the internationally recognized and legitimate government to carry out its mission, and reinstate peace and security in the Republic of Yemen.
