*ISLAMABAD – **Pakistan strongly responds over missile strikes against Saudi Arabia cities.*
*Pakistan on Tuesday condemned the firing of two ballistic missiles by Yemeni Houthis towards Makkah which were intercepted by Saudi Arabia .*
In a statement, the Foreign Office spokesperson said Pakistan reaffirms its solidarity with Saudi Arabia and reiterates its support against any threat to the security of the Kingdom.
The Foreign Office hit out at the aggression and praised the vigilant Saudi defence forces for intercepting the missiles.
“Islamabad reaffirms its solidarity with Saudi Arabia and reiterates its support against any threat to the security of the Kingdom,” the communique read.
Riyadh had intercepted on Monday the ballistic missile in Makkah fired by the Iran-aligned fighters.
The foiled ballistic missile came at a time of heightened tensions between Tehran and Gulf Arab states and a roughly four-year conflict in Yemen largely seen as a proxy war between the two sides.
