Bangladesh has strongly condemned the drone attacks targeting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by the Houthi rebels on February 10 and 17.

The first attack hit a parked commercial aircraft causing damage and the second attack was intercepted and destroyed by the Joint Coalition Forces before hitting targets.

 These unprovoked acts by the Houthi rebels undermine the peace and security in the region, said the Foreign Ministry on Sunday.

It said Bangladesh calls for immediate cessation of such attacks and reiterates solidarity with the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the face of such aggression.

Bangladesh also expressed its full support to the Kingdom against any threat to its security and territorial integrity and in their efforts to bring about lasting peace and stability in the region.
