UAE condemns terrorist attack on security patrol in Qatif province of Saudi Arabia.


The United Arab Emirates has strongly condemned the terrorist attack on Sunday which targeted a security patrol in the Al-Masoura district in Qatif governorate in Saudi Arabia, killing one and injuring six others.

In a statement today, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said that the UAE strongly condemns the criminal act and permanently rejects all forms of violence and terrorism, reiterating its strong support for Saudi Arabia and its firm standing in confronting these serious crimes.

The ministry went on to stress that such cowardly acts of terrorism would not undermine the determination of the people of Saudi Arabia and their resolve to continue to confront terrorism which has no homeland, religion or morals. “This terrorist act is completely incompatible with all human and religious principles and values,” it said.

The ministry concluded its statement by expressing the UAE’s condolences to the family of the martyr, the government and the people of Saudi Arabia, and wishing for a speedy recovery for those injured in the attack.
