Published: Updated:

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation will hold a ministerial meeting Thursday to discuss Houthi militias’ targeting of the holy city of Makkah with a ballistic missile last month.

The meeting of the foreign ministers of the OIC follows an emergency meeting held by the executive committee last week discussed any developments on the case, Al Arabiya.Net reported.

The OIC has condemned the failed attack on Makkah in Saudi Arabia after Houthi militias sent a ballistic missile across the border, shocking and angered both Saudis and Muslims worldwide late last month.

The previous meeting denounced the militias and those who provide them with arms including rockets and missiles to target Makkah.

It was concluded that the attempted attack was an act of aggression against the holy city “which is a provocation for world Muslims and evidence of their refusal to comply with the international community and its demands.”

The OIC stressed its unyielding support and solidarity with the Kingdom in its fight against terrorism.
