The Gambia government on Wednesday issued a statement expressing concern over the recent attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman and on Abha International Airport in Saudi Arabia.

Two oil tankers last week came under attack in the Gulf of Oman and on Monday, Yemen’s Houthi rebels claimed to have launched a drone attack on a civilian airport in southern Saudi Arabia.

The Government of the Republic of The Gambia in a statement on Wednesday said it was expressing ‘grave’ concern over the recent attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman and on Abha International Airport in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

“The Government of the Republic of The Gambia condemns in no uncertain terms these dastardly acts that threaten lives, property and world peace; and, calls on the International Community to bring the perpetrators to justice.

“By the same token, the Gambia Government reaffirms its solidarity with the people and government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Arab coalition partners,” the statement issued by the foreign affairs ministry said.
