Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Secretary General Dr. Nayef Al-Hajraf has condemned the terrorist Houthi militia's launching of ballistic missiles to target civilians in Saudi Arabia's Jazan.


Al-Hajraf stressed that ongoing terrorist attacks by the militias reflect their defiance of the international community and their disregard for all international laws and norms.


This requires an immediate and decisive stance from the international community to stop such attacks that target vital and civilian installations.


He praised the vigilance of the Coalition to Fight Legitimacy in Yemen in confronting all terrorist attacks carried out by the insurgents.


The GCC Secretary General also affirmed the Council’s solidarity with the Kingdom in all measures it takes to defend its territories and preserve the safety of its citizens and residents.


The Coalition said on Thursday it destroyed a second ballistic missile launched by the Houthis towards Jazan.
