Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, on Tuesday spoke out against the Iranian regime following a series of Houthi missile attacks on Saudi Arabia.

In a Twitter post, Prince Khalid wrote: “The Iranian regime continues to violate international laws as it tests the world’s resolve. It is still supporting terrorism in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain and Yemen.

“It provides the terrorist Houthi militias with missiles in violation of UN Security Council resolutions,” he added.

Saudi forces intercepted seven Yemeni rebel missiles on Sunday, including over the capital Riyadh.

“This aggressive and hostile action by the Iran-backed Houthi group proves that the Iranian regime continues to support the armed group with military capabilities,” Arab Coalition spokesman Turki al-Malki said on Monday.
