Haidan stated that the efforts are being exerted and security measures have been taken in coordination with the Saudi-led Coalition in support of legitimacy to investigate into the terrorist operation to find out the details.
"The terrorist attack absolutely plays into the hands of Iran-backed Houthi militia", he said.
