ISLAMABAD, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan has strongly condemned a missile attack on the Saudi Arabian city of Samtah that resulted in casualties.

"Such attacks not only violate international law but also threaten peace and security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the region," Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement issued Saturday night.

Calling for immediate cessation of these attacks, Pakistan reaffirmed its full support and solidarity with Saudi Arabia against any threats to its security and territorial integrity, the statement added.

The Houthi missile attack on Friday night hit a car maintenance workshop in Samtah, killing a Saudi citizen and a Yemeni migrant worker, and injuring seven others, including a Yemeni migrant worker, according to the Saudi state media.
