Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said on Tuesday that Iran’s supply of missiles to the Houthi militia in Yemen was a “direct military aggression.”

On Sunday, the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthi militia in Yemen accused them of “dangerous escalation (that) came because of Iranian support” after Saudi air defenses intercepted the ballistic missile heading toward Riyadh.

It was brought down near Riyadh airport without causing casualties.

Prince Mohammed received a phone call from British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson who condemned the Houthi missile launch.

Johnson condemned the Houthis for intentionally targeting civilians and said Britain stands with the Saudi kingdom in confronting security threats, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The crown prince told Johnson that the Iranian regime’s involvement in providing Houthi militias, which are affiliated with it, with missiles is a direct and a military aggression by Tehran and amounts to being viewed as an act of war against the kingdom.

Johnson and the crown prince also discussed regional and international developments during the phone call, the report added.
