AMMAN — Jordan on Friday strongly denounced targeting Saudi Arabia with a ballistic missile that was fired by Yemen's Houthi militias and shot down by Saudi air defence.

Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani stressed the Kingdom’s support for Saudi Arabia in defending itself against recurrent attacks by Houthi militias, renewing Jordan’s condemnation of all military actions that target urban areas and threaten civilians, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

"As it renews its stances in support of Saudis' efforts to reach a peaceful solution to the Yemeni crisis, Jordan calls on all conflicting parties in Yemen to renounce violence and fighting," Momani, who is also the government's spokesperson, said, urging all parties to resume negotiations leading to a peaceful solution that spares the country the woes of war.
