RABAT, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- Morocco has strongly denounced Sunday's attack against a Saudi frigate west of the Yemeni port of Hodeidah, the Moroccan foreign ministry said Thursday in a statement.
According to Saudi Press Agency, Houthi militants attacked the Saudi warship with three suicide bombing boats, causing an explosion that killed two crew members and injured three others.
While expressing deep condolences and compassion to the Saudi government and people, Morocco reaffirms its full solidarity with Saudi Arabia and its support to Saudi efforts aiming at restoring legality in Yemen, the statement pointed out.
Morocco called for the immediate cessation of these attacks that violate maritime law and impact negatively on humanitarian aid intended for the brotherly Yemeni people, the statement added.
These attacks undermine international efforts aiming at reaching a political solution to the Yemen crisis, in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions, it stressed.
