The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia condemned on Thursday the Houthi militia’s aggression towards the Kingdom, adding that it was a failed attempt by a corrupt tyrant who was “not of Islam.”
Sheikh Abdul Aziz, who is the head of the Supreme Council of Scholars, praised the courage of the Saudi forces who had defended the country from the attacks.
Saudi air defenses intercepted seven ballistic missiles fired by Houthi militia in Yemen toward various targets in Saudi Arabia earlier this week.
He said: “We must be united with our leaders and we appeal to them and call them and defend them.”
The Grand Mufti said the attack was a “serious criminal act of aggression that was misguided and was not an Islamic act.”
And he said the Houthis were “corrupt tyrants,” whose actions bore no relation to Islam.
