The president stressed Egypt's full solidarity with Saudi Arabia - government and people - in confronting all attempts that seek to undermine the stability of the Kingdom and the Arab Gulf in general, stressing the close link between the security and stability of the two brotherly countries, according to a presidential statement.

The Egyptian president's call to the Saudi crown prince came as the Houthi Yemen rebels struck civilian targets and vital facilities in the city of Jeddah in the late afternoon on Friday.

The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs also issued a statement last night condemning Friday's latest Houthi Houthi terrorist attack on Jeddah.

The Houthi attack on Jeddah, which is set to host Formula 1 on Sunday, also drew widespread international condemnation.

Egypt has steadfastly condemned all Houthi attacks against the kingdom in the last several years.

During a short visit to Saudi Arabia earlier this month, El-Sisi stressed that the kingdom's security is considered an integral part of Egypt’s national security.
