Gov’t of Ghana strongly condemns militant attacks on civilians in Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia

Must Read

The Governement of Ghana has strongly condemned what it describes as “henious attacks” by Houthi militia on civilian population in Abu Dhabi and some parts of Saudi Arabia.

The Houthi militia is a rebel group based in Yemen. The group, on Monday fired two missiles targeted at a base in Abu Dhabi where 2,000 Americans are stationed, the latest salvo in their escalating war with a Saudi-led coalition that includes the United Arab Emirates.

The recent missile attack comes a week after the group carried a similar attack which targeted the airport in Abu Dhabi and a fuel depot. That attack on the fuel depot killed three people.

The intervention of the U.S. military in Monday’s attack helped the United Arab Emirates thwart the missile attack by rebels in Yemen.

These attacks, Government of Ghana says are in breach of international law and also threaten the global efforts to maintain peace and security in the Middle East.

In a press release on Monday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, the government extended its deepest condolences to the Government of the United Arab Emirates and victims of the attacks.

The statement further urged all sides to avoid actions that would escalate tension and increase violence in the region.

“The attacks are a violation of the internationl law and threaten efforts aimed at restoring peace and security in the region…. We express our deepest condolences to the Government and the people of the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the families of the victims,” parts of the Ministry’s statement read.
