DUBAI: The Arab ministerial committee has condemned Iran's support for the Houthis' targeting Saudi Arabia with ballistic missiles, state news agency SPA reported on Wednesday.

The committee -- made up of ministers from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE and Egypt - condemned Iran's ongoing support for terrorist acts in the Arab region and its violation of the Security Council resolution 2216 (2015), which requires militia to be disarmed.
