India and Pakistan have joined hands in condemning missile attacks targeting civilian areas in Riyadh and other cities of Saudi Arabia. 

UAE’s Sweeping Responses Prove Effective as Covid-19 Pandemic Spreads

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, Saudi Arabia’s air defences intercepted two ballistic missiles over Riyadh, and the southern city of Jizan, the first attack on the kingdom’s capital in more than a year.

Military spokesman Turki al-Malki, in a statement quoted by the Saudi Press Agency, blamed the foiled assaults on Yemen’s Houthi rebels and said the missiles were destroyed at 23:23 on Saturday.

The missiles were fired at four targets, including the capital city of Riyadh, and all were intercepted and destroyed, said the spokesman of the Saudi coalition forces for supporting the legitimacy in Yemen Colonel Turki Al-Malki.

India had earlier strongly condemned renewed missile attacks targeting civilian areas in Riyadh and other cities of Saudi Arabia and reemphasised its resolve to fight terrorism and violence in all its forms.

“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,” the external affairs ministry spokesperson said.

Pakistan Condemns Attack

Pakistan also has “strongly condemned” the missile attacks at a time when the kingdom is fighting with the coronavirus pandemic. “It is particularly reprehensible that armed attacks were directed at the civilian population that is already fighting the pandemic,” the Foreign Office said in a statement on Sunday.

“We laud the Saudi Defence Forces for their timely interception, preventing loss of precious lives and damage to property,” the communique added.

While iterating its full solidarity with the people of Saudi Arabia, Pakistan “reaffirms its support to the kingdom against any threat to its security and territorial integrity.”
