Egypt has strongly condemned the firing of a number of ballistic missiles by Houthi fighters in Yemen at several Saudi cities, including Riyadh, on Wednesday, an Egyptian foreign ministry statement said.

The missiles were intercepted and destroyed by the Saudi military.

The Egyptian foreign ministry said that the Egypt was standing in solidarity next to Saudi Arabia, against all those attempting to destabilise it or threaten its peace and stability.

The statement added that that attack made the countries of the Arab coalition “more determined to restore legitimacy” in Yemen and to boost efforts in the war on terrorism.

Egypt has been a member of the Saudi-led military coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen since March 2015.
