Islamabad, 29 September 2023 (TDI): Pakistan condemns the terrorist attack on the Bahrain Defense Force position on the southern border of Saudi Arabia which resulted in the martyrdom of two Bahraini personnel and injured others, on September 28.
Foreign Office stated that Pakistan extends its deepest sympathies to the families of the martyrs as well as to the Kingdom of Bahrain and its amiable citizens.
We offer our prayers for the Bahrain defense force soldiers who have been hurt to fully recover, as stated by the Foreign Office.
The Foreign Office has previously brought up the Yemeni Houthis and denounced their strikes on the Saudi-led coalition troops waging war against the Houthi movement.
Bahrain’s military leadership reported that a drone assault near Saudi Arabia’s southern border with Yemen killed two Bahraini troops.
According to a statement from Bahrain’s military, the attack also injured several Bahraini soldiers.
However, they did not disclose the exact number of injured soldiers.
Despite the cessation of military activities between the warring parties in Yemen, the Houthis were responsible for this terrorist attack, the Bahraini military stated.
They dispatched aircraft to strike the position of Bahraini guards on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s southern border.
For several years, Bahrain, an island nation, has been a strong ally of Saudi Arabia, which has been at war with Houthi militants in Yemen, supported by Iran.
The Houthis refrained from promptly admitting responsibility for the attack. Additionally, there was no acknowledgment or reference to any assault on the media and social media initiatives managed by the Houthis.
Moreover, earlier this month, they engaged in negotiations with Saudi Arabian officials regarding a potential agreement aimed at facilitating the resolution of the conflict in Yemen.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) earlier denounced the attack on the Bahraini military installation.
Hissein Brahim Taha, the Secretary-General of the OIC, expressed sincere condolences in this regard.
