Riyadh, July 16, 2020, SPA -- Saudi newspapers highlighted in their editorials today a number of issues, at local, regional, and international arenas.

Al-Riyadh newspaper reported in its editorial that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with Terrorist Financing Targeting Center (TFTC)'s six members, have jointly designated six prominent names involved in providing facilities and financial support for the terrorist organization ISIS.

The paper added that this step comes within its unremitting efforts in fighting against terrorism, defending its Islamic holy sites and national gains, preserving the security and safety of its citizens, in addition to avoiding the region and the world such destabilizing terrorist operations for security and stability.

The paper concluded that Saudi Arabia has achieved great successes as it foiled many terrorist operations inside its lands and arrested their masterminds.

As part of Saudi Arabia's efforts to fight terrorism, the paper pointed to Saudi Arabia's announcement in December 2015 of the leadership of the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition of 41 countries, and launching the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology (Etidal).

Al-Yaum newspaper reported in its editorial that Saudi Cabinet has reiterated, in its regular session, its strong condemnation of the continued Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia in launching ballistic missiles and booby-trapped drone towards Saudi Arabia in deliberate ways targeting civilians and civilian objects.

The paper added that the Cabinet has confirmed that such terrorist and hostile acts are inconsistent with international humanitarian law and norms.

The paper concluded that the Cabinet has commended the efficiency of the joint coalition forces to counter these terrorist attacks in light of the perpetrators' rejection to respond to the ceasefire initiative announced earlier by the coalition in Yemen.
