The Lebanese foreign ministry has condemned the attempted attacks by Yemen’s Houthi militias on Saudi Arabia, stressing permanent support for the Kingdom.


The ministry “strongly condemned” Wednesday’s attempted terrorist attack on the Kingdom through a booby-trapped boat, and earlier, through a drone.


In a statement, it affirmed the Lebanese government’s “permanent support for the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against all what affects the security, stability and the safety of its citizens.”


The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen said Wednesday it had destroyed an explosive-laden boat used by the Iran-backed group in the south of the Red Sea.


The Coalition had earlier destroyed a drone which took off from Sanaa international airport.
