India Strongly Condemns Missile Attack Targeting Riyadh Airport

India Strongly Condemns Missile Attack Targeting Riyadh Airport”

In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs said, "We strongly condemn the missile attack reportedly targeting the Riyadh airport".

"We express our solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia", the ministry added.

Saudi Ambassador to Egypt Ahmed Bin Abdul Aziz Qattan on Wednesday denounced the launch of a ballistic missile from Yemen towards Riyadh, calling Saturday's attack as a blatant assault and an act of aggression by Iranian-backed Houthi militants.

In its communiqué, the Mauritanian Government hailed the Saudi defence forces for having "intercepted and destroyed the enemy's missile at the right time, preventing the loss of innocent lives".

"Travelers across King Khalid worldwide airport in Riyadh, we assure you that the movement is going on as normal and usual, and trips going according to time", the airport tweeted.

Saudi Arabia is leading a mostly Arab military coalition to fight Houthi rebels in Yemen since March 2015 in a bid to restore President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who was ousted by the Houthis in September 2014.

According to the reports, the attack was conducted using a Yemeni-made, long-range ballistic missile called the "Burqan 2H".
