Iran: Supporters of Saudi-led coalition accomplices in Yemen war crimes
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh denounces Saudi raids on residential areas in Yemen.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned the airstrikes launched by the Saudi-led coalition on residential and civilian areas in Yemen during the past few days, accusing the supporters of the aggression of being "complicit in war crimes."
Khatibzadeh said the "continuation of military attacks on Yemen with the silence of the international community, the uncontrolled sale of weapons to the aggressors, along with the biased approach and double standards after seven years of brutal aggression against the Yemeni people, have made it even more difficult to achieve fair peace in this country."
He added that the countries that have provided arms for the aggressors in Yemen that killed Yemeni women and children by providing them with bombs and weapons of mass destruction are partners in these crimes and must bear responsibility for this support before world public opinion.
The Spokesperson stressed that the continued blockade and shelling of the Yemeni people show that there is no serious will to reach a political resolution for the Yemen crisis and persistence in adopting a destructive military approach will only result in the destruction of Yemen and destabilization in the region.
More than 60 victims were martyred and more than 120 were wounded as a result of the Saudi coalition raids, which directly targeted the central prison in Saada, but today the Security Council condemned what it described as "brutal terrorist aggression against Abu Dhabi and other regions of Saudi Arabia," completely disregarding the perpetrations of the Saudi regime and its allies.
Earlier, the Saudi coalition aircraft targeted the communications tower in the city of Al-Hudaydah, which led to six martyrs, including three children, and 18 wounded, most of whom are children.
Western humanitarian organizations, led by the Norwegian Refugee Organization, denounced the brutal massacres committed by the Saudi coalition in Saada, Al-Hudaydah, and Sanaa.
