Head of the Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques Sheikh Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais has lauded the stand taken by the Kingdom and other nations against the Houthis in Yemen.

“Yemen has been ravaged by the Houthi militias supported by foreign agencies striving to undermine the security of the Muslim world…”

In a statement on Friday, he said the aim to divide and undermine Muslims countries was motivated by the “expansionist ambitions” of certain nations.

Al-Sudais said he was speaking on behalf of colleagues and fellow imams and preachers at the Grand Mosque. He praised the Kingdom’s leaders for taking action to resolve issues facing Muslims and welcomed the support given by fellow Muslim and Arab nations to purge Yemen from “corrupt” influences.

He said the move also shows the Kingdom is committed to securing its borders and ensuring the safety of its citizens. Saudi Arabia’s security was important for all Muslims because it is the destination for Umrah and Haj pilgrims, he said.

Al-Sudais said the decision by the Kingdom’s ruler to launch operations against the Houthis was in line with the objectives of the Shariah, which calls for the protection of the rights and property of Muslims, and countering corruption.

He said the operation was needed because the Houthis were involved in oppressing the people and had refused attempts at reconciliation and dialogue.

The sheikh said he is calling on the Houthis, from the pulpits of the two Holy mosques, which represents truth, justice and peace.

He said, “We call on this transgressing group to return to its senses and understand that the welfare of the people can be secured by stopping the bloodshed, surrendering their weapons, and accepting the legitimate choices of the Yemeni nation…”
