Saudi Arabia condemns the acts of sabotage targeting commercial and civilian vessels

An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has expressed the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s condemnation of the acts of sabotage that targeted commercial and civilian vessels near the UAE territorial waters in the Gulf of Oman, towards the eastern coast near the Emirate of Fujairah and in the exclusive economic zone of the United Arab Emirates, in the morning of Sunday, 7th of Ramadan 1440 AH.

“This criminal act poses a serious threat to the security and safety of maritime navigation , which is reflected negatively on regional and international peace and security, stressing the solidarity of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its stand alongside the UAE in all measures being taken to safeguard its security and interests.” The source stressed to the Saudi Press Agency.

UAE said on Sunday that four commercial vessels were sabotaged near Fujairah emirate, one of the world’s largest bunkering hubs lying just outside the Strait of Hormuz, but did not say who was behind the attack or describe the nature of it.
