RIYADH — Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Defense Minister Prince Khalid Bin Salman said that the terrorist attack by the Iran backed Houthis against Saudi Arabia and the UAE represents a threat to the region’s security.



In a series of tweets early Tuesday, Prince Khalid said that the Houthis aren’t interested in peace and remain hostage to their regional backer, which treats our region’s security as a mere negotiating card.



“They continue to reject all UN and other peace proposals put forth by the Kingdom and the international community, endangering the wellbeing of the brotherly Yemeni people and threatening the global economy with acts of terrorism.”

He pointed out that the Houthi terrorism is perpetuated by a flow of Iranian weapons through the Hodiedah and Al Sulaif ports, breaking UNSC resolutions and turning these ports into bases to attack neighbors and threaten global shipping lanes.

He urged the international community to stand up to this violation of international law.
