Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan and the UAE have expressed their condemnation of rocket attacks targeting Saudi Arabia on Sunday night, asserting their full support for the Kingdom.

An official source at the Kuwaiti foreign ministry said that Kuwait has "followed with deep resentment and condemnation the rocket attacks against Saudi Arabia."

Bahrain condemned the firing of rockets towards residential areas in Saudi Arabia.

A statement released by the UAE's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation "reiterated the UAE's full stand with its sisterly country, in the face of this escalation of hostilities."

It added that the attacks reflect the Iranian-backed Houthi militias intransigence and its insistence on destabilizing the region's security and stability.

Kuwaiti security forces confirmed their total rejection of these attacks, which "reflect the intransigence of the Houthis and their rejection of peace and the will of the international community to put an end to the conflict in Yemen."

The source called on the international community, especially the UN Security Council, to act immediately to put an end to the attacks. He added that these practices will not undermine the determination of brothers in Saudi Arabia to defend their security and stability and preserve the lives of their citizens.

The source affirmed Kuwait's full support to Saudi Arabia and its support for all measures taken to maintain its security and stability.
