The US State Department pledged on Sunday to help Saudi Arabia defend against attacks on its territory as it condemned a failed attack on Riyadh.


“We are gathering more information, but it appears to have been an attempt to target civilians,” the State Department said about the failed attack.


“Such attacks contravene international law and undermine all efforts to promote peace and stability,” it said in a statement.


It pledged to “help our partner Saudi Arabia defend against attacks on its territory and hold those who attempt to undermine stability to account.”
