He pointed out that these crimes will only be carried out with the will and directions of the Americans, which exposes its false democracy. "Everyone knows that Bin Salman won't even go on a vacation without an American approval."
For its part, the Prisoners' Affairs Committee in Sanaa said the Saudi regime's execution of prisoners of war violated all laws and charters, adding that the Saudi regime's execution of the two Yemeni prisoners, Hakim Al-Batini and Haider Al-Shawdani, is a dangerous precedent.
It warned that executing these two prisoners portends dire intolerable consequences.
Iraqi factions: We affirm our condemnation of Saudi crimes
The Secretary-General of Asa'ib Ahl Al-Haq, Qais Khazali, confirmed today, Saturday, that "Saudi Arabia brutally executes dozens for reasons, most of which are abhorrently sectarian," condemning the "systematic sectarian behavior of the Saudi government."
For its part, Iraq's Hezbollah Brigades considered that the behavior of the Saudi authorities indicates the extent of this "gang's brutality and thirst for blood, and even proves the threat its existence poses to humanity."
It considered that "the crimes and massacres committed by the Saudi entity against innocent people from the country of the Two Holy Mosques, Iraq, and Yemen, and in every country to which it let its mercenaries in, not to mention its malicious Wahhabi ideas under the protection and sponsorship of Zionism, confirms that they are the main cause of instability in the region."
