MENA , Friday 3 Jul 2020

Egypt condemned Friday the Houthi attempt to launch four explosive-laden drones towards the Saudi Kingdom.

The Arab Coalition intercepted and destroyed four explosive-laden drones launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia towards Saudi Arabia, the coalition’s spokesperson Colonel Turki al-Maliki said on Friday.

The drones were destroyed in the Yemeni airspace, he added.

In its statement, the Foreign Ministry reiterated its full solidarity with Saudi Arabia in its actions and measures, which aimed at protecting its national security.

Such practices will only lead to further escalations, which will foment tensions, and drive Yemen into a vicious cycle of chaos, the statement added.

Egypt stressed the importance of responding to all the ceasefire calls, to pave the way for political settlement to the Yemeni crisis.
