Arab and Islamic countries slammed on Monday the Iran-backed Houthi militias for their repeated attempts to attack Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

They stressed that they support all measures the countries take to preserve the security and stability of their citizens and residents.

Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Secretary General Dr. Nayef al-Hajraf said the Houthis' insistence on carrying out such attacks reflects their blatant defiance of the international community and undermining of international laws and norms.

He said it demonstrates the militias' rejection of all efforts aimed at achieving peace in Yemen.

He called on the international community to assume its responsibilities and take decisive stance against the Houthis so that they will halt their terrorist acts that target civilians and vital facilities.

He hailed the high efficiency of the Saudi air defenses and UAE Defense Ministry that intercepted the Houthi ballistic missile attacks.

Kuwait, Bahrain, Egypt and Jordan strongly condemned the cowardly terrorist Houthi attacks against Saudi Arabia and the UAE, expressing their solidarity with them against acts that undermine their security and stability.
