MADRID, March 26. (Royals Blue) –
The secretary general of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, has condemned the dozen attacks with missiles and unmanned planes against facilities of the Saudi state oil company Aramco in the interior of the country, within a “deep offensive” in retaliation for the participation of the Arab kingdom in the international operation against the rebels.
“Attacking civilians and civilian installations, including those of Aramco in Jeddah city, represents a dangerous development to which the international community must pay attention, which must more firmly address these terrorist operations, and the violations practiced by the Houthi militia” , has highlighted in a statement.
In this sense, the secretary general of the Arab League added that the Saudi forces “have responded efficiently to the attacks” and that international solidarity with Saudi Arabia “must be reflected in a clear position regarding these attacks”.
Separately, other countries in the region, such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Algeria or Egypt – whose president, Abdelfatá al Sisi, has spoken with the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman – have lamented these attacks. Countries such as the United Kingdom, France or the United States have also joined the condemnation.
The United States National Security Adviser, Jake Sullivan, has condemned these attacks, which he has also defined as “acts of terrorism” aimed at “prolonging the suffering of the Yemeni people.”
In addition, from the White House they have directly accused Iran of “enabling” said missile launches in what is a violation of the United Nations Security Council resolutions that prohibit the import of weapons to Yemen.
