Saudi Arabia: More US-made air defense systems

Commander of the US Central Command (CENTCOM) General Kenneth McKenzie stated last week (20/4/21) before the US House Armed Services Committee that the Pentagon should maintain its commitment to provide information and support to the Saudi Armed Forces, in order to strengthen the Saudi response to Houthi attacks against military and oil facilities in the Kingdom.

In this context, General McKenzie is said to have previously reassured Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz that he would personally seek to facilitate Saudi Arabia’s procurement of more US-made air defense systems.
