Iran Condemns Saudi Air Raids on Yemeni People

Iran Foreign Ministry

Iran’s foreign ministry has decried the recent Saudi airstrikes on innocent Yemeni people, saying Riyadh seeks to make up for its defeats by killing Yemenis.

In a statement on Tuesday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi categorically condemned yesterday’s Saudi airstrikes on a market as well as relentless attacks on civilian targets in different Yemeni cities over the past few days, which killed or wounded dozens of innocent people, including women and children.

Calling for a halt to the attacks, Qassemi said, “More than a thousand days on since the beginning of the devastating [Saudi] war [on Yemen], Saudi Arabia has shown that whenever it suffers failure and defeat in battlefields and operational areas, it seeks to take revenge by bombarding defenceless people and killing innocent women and children.”

“It is regrettable that these crazy attacks conducted with deadly American weapons do not draw the reaction of those who claim [to be advocates of human rights and innocent people],” said Qassemi.
