Tuesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned the ongoing attempts by Yemen's Houthi rebels to target civilian areas in Saudi Arabia. The last attempted attack by the Houthis involved a missile that fell at one of the border villages in the Jazan region, leaving five civilians injured.
In a statement, the ministry spokesperson Daifallah Al-Fayez affirmed Jordan’s strong condemnation of this "cowardly terrorist act" and the targeting of innocent civilians, which is a violation of international humanitarian law.
He also stressed that Jordan fully stands by Saudi Arabia in the face of any threat to its security, according to the statement.
