Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Ministry have condemned an attack by Houthi militia on a mosque in the Marib province of Yemen, killing 83 people, state news agency SPA reported on Monday.
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia strongly condemns the terrorist attack carried out by the Houthi militia,” the foreign ministry said in a statement. The assault “reflects this terrorist militia’s disregard for sacred places and... for Yemeni blood.”
The Houthis attacked a mosque in a military camp in the central province of Marib — about 170 kilometers (105 miles) east of the capital Sanaa — during evening prayers, military sources told AFP.
“We strongly condemn the terrorist attack on a mosque by the Houthi militias... which left more than 100 dead and dozens injured,” the Yemeni foreign ministry said on Twitter.
The victims were transported to a Marib city hospital, where a medical source earlier gave a toll of 83 dead and 148 injured.
