Arab coalition affirms Saudi Arabia’s right to respond to Iran’s ‘act of war’
The Arab Coalition fighting against the Houthi militia in Yemen said on Sunday that it considered the intercepted missile attack on Riyadh on Friday a blatant and direct military aggression by the Iranian regime, which may amount to an act of war against Saudi Arabia.
The coalition affirmed the kingdom’s right to legitimate defense of its territory and people as stated in Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations.
The statement added: “Saudi Arabia also has a right to respond to Iran at the appropriate time and manner, supported by international law and in accordance with its inherent right to defend its territory, its people and its interests protected by all international conventions.”
