New Delhi: India today strongly condemned the missile attack reportedly targeting the Riyadh airport last week, and reiterated its commitment to fight against all forms of terrorism and violence.
The external affairs ministry also said that it was deeply concerned at any escalation of violence that threatens the safety and security of innocent people.
“We strongly condemn the missile attack reportedly targeting the Riyadh airport…We also reiterate our commitment to fight against all forms of terrorism and violence,” it said.
According to media reports, Saudi Arabia intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile over Riyadh after it was launched from conflict-torn Yemen, with debris landing inside the capital’s international airport on November 4.
Residents in Riyadh reported a loud bang near the airport after the missile, the firing of which was claimed by Iran- backed Houthi rebels, was shot down, but authorities reported no major damage or loss of life, they said.
