Turkey strongly condemned Friday, a missile attack by Yemen's Shia Houthi militia on Thursday that hit a territory of Saudi Arabia, according to a Foreign Ministry statement.
"We are pleased that the missile, which was headed towards the city of Khamis Mushait, did not cause any casualties thanks to its interception by the Saudi air defense system," the statement said.
“We hope that such attacks targeting the territory of Saudi Arabia will not recur,” the statement added.
Yemen has been racked by chaos since late 2014, when the Houthis and their allies overran the capital, Sanaa, and other parts of the country, forcing President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi and his Saudi-backed government to temporarily flee to Riyadh.
In March, 2015, Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies launched a massive military campaign in Yemen aimed at reversing Houthi gains and restoring Hadi’s embattled government.
In April of this year, the Yemeni government and the Houthis entered into UN-sponsored peace talks in Kuwait aimed at resolving the conflict, in which more than 10,000 people have been killed, 40,000 wounded and another 2.5 million forced to flee their homes.
