Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has joined the international community in condemning the recent launch of missile attack targeting the holy city of Makkah in Saudi Arabia by the Saleh-Houthi militias over the on-going Yemeni crisis.

Saraki who described such targeted attack on Makkah as an assault on the entire Muslims said that Makkah with its Islamic holy site, Kabbah, represents the unity of the entire human race and therefore should be immune from politically-motivated attacks.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu which was made available to Authentic Platform News Nigeria, the Senate President said all forms of insurgency and militancy to resolve political issues are unacceptable by the international community.

He called on the Houthi groups and their sponsors to desist from their violent interruptions and diversion and join on-going genuine efforts to secure stable truce in Yemen which will lead to the eventual settlement of the crisis.

Saraki also praised the Coalition Air Forces based in the area for their vigilance which led to the interception and destruction of the ballistic missile about 65 Kilometres away from its target without causing any damage.

He however, urged the United Nations and other key nations of the world to co-operate with the Gulf Countries Coalition (GCC) to intensify efforts in resolving the Yemeni crisis and other flash points in the Gulf region in particular, and the Middle East, in general.
