Foreign Ministry condemns attempted missile strike on Riyadh

The Mauritanian government has condemned Saturday night's missile attack aimed at the global airport near Riyadh the Saudi capital, according to a statement made public last night in Nouakchott."Following the ballistic missile attack on King Khaled worldwide Airport, the Islamic Republic of Mauritania condemns in the strongest terms, this coward act", the Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Ministry said in the statement.

In a press statement, Qattan said the attack confirms the Iranian support of Houthi militias to target the Saudi Kingdom, describing this Iranian act as a clear and flagrant violation of the United Nations resolution 2216, which prohibits providing arms for the Houthis.

The external affairs ministry also said that it was deeply concerned at any escalation of violence that threatens the safety and security of innocent people.

Saudi Arabia's Civil Aviation Authority confirmed on Twitter that the missile had been brought down near the International King Khalid Airport in Riyadh.

Al Masirah, a TV network run by the Houthi rebels, claimed responsibility for the attack on their social media account.
