Saudi king: Shiite rebels driven out
Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz stated late Monday that all armed infiltrators have been driven of the Saudi territory by the kingdom’s armed forces. According to a report, published by Al Arabiya, he said that all residents who have been evacuated from their villages due to fighting with the Shiite rebels on the Yemeni border are being taken care of with the government.
The Saudi monarch made these comments as he chaired a Cabinet meeting in Riyadh. He thanked world leaders for voicing solidarity with Saudi Arabia after the rebels' raids. According to the report, the Cabinet also thanked the GCC countries for supporting the Kingdom. A GCC Ministerial Council meeting in Doha said recently that any attack on the Kingdom would be considered an attack on all GCC countries.
