British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has condemned the Scud missile attack on Saudi Arabia by Yemeni Houthi militias, which was intercepted by Saudi air defense forces on Saturday.

Speaking after the missile attack near to the city of Khamis Mushayt on Saturday morning, Hammond said:

“I condemn this morning’s Scud missile attack on Saudi Arabia that was fired from across the border with Yemen and endorse Saudi Arabia’s right to take action to defend itself from such attacks.

“This attack must not be allowed to derail the political process, which remains the only way to bring long-term stability to Yemen.”

This was first published by the Saudi Gazette.
