JEDDAH: The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has expressed its deep concern over the repercussions of the act committed by the Houthi-Saleh militias, which launched a ballistic missile towards Riyadh in a serious and clear breach of international law and an aggression against the safety and security of the territories of Saudi Arabia.

In a statement, OIC said, “The Kingdom had previously faced similar violations of its territories when Houthi-Saleh militias launched a ballistic missile towards the Holy Mosque in Makkah Al Mukarramah on 27th October, 2016.”

“The militias repeated their heinous attempt on 27th July, 2017. These violations were utterly denounced by OIC member states and regional and international organisations.”

The OIC expressed its condemnation and dismay over the reports that foreign parties were involved in this attack and that such parties have provided the Houthis with weapons and the missiles they launched from the Yemeni territories, as revealed by the investigation conducted in this regard.
