CAIRO — The Arab Parliament condemned the terrorist Houthi militia launching of a drone on a school in Asir region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, aiming at intimidating safe civilians and destroying civilian objects, in violation of all international norms and laws, it was reported Monday.

In a statement Sunday, the Arab Parliament warned that the international community’s failure to take deterrent stances against this Iran-backed terrorist militia would encourage the perpetrators to persist their terrorist acts, which constitute war crimes under international and humanitarian laws, calling on the international community to intervene immediately and decisively to stop these systematic violations, aiming to destabilize security and stability in the region.

The Arab Parliament affirmed its full support for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in all the measures it takes to confront the terrorist Houthi militia and preserve its security and the safety of its citizens and expatriates on its lands, stressing that compromising the security of the Kingdom is a threat to Arab national security.
