Bahrain condemns terrorist attack on two Saudi oil tankers

Manama, The Kingdom of Bahrain has strongly condemned the Houthi coup militias' attack on two oil tankers belonging to the Saudi National Shipping Company (NSC) while the vessels were crossing Bab Al-Mandab Strait in the Red Sea.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs affirms that the cowardly attack constitutes a flagrant violation of all international laws and norms and poses a serious threat to the freedom of international trade and maritime navigation in Bab Al-Mandab Strait and the Red Sea."

"Whilst reiterating its full solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and supporting the measures it takes to preserve its resources and deter attempts to harm its security, Bahrain emphasizes the need for immediate global action to put an end to such dangerous acts," the ministry stressed in a statement issued today.

The ministry called upon the international community to confront the terror acts of the Houthi coup militias in Yemen and to stand up to all those who support them and provide them with funds in order to protect international navigation in Bab Al-Mandab Strait.
