The crime being committed in different parts of the region and Yemen today is a scandal for those who claim to be supporters of human rights, said the Judiciary spokesman.
The Iranian Judiciary announced plans to take legal action against Saudi Arabia after the latter’s fighter jets intercepted several Iranian cargo planes that intended to land in Sana’a to supply humanitarian aid to the war-stricken people in Yemen.
“The crime being committed in different parts of the region and Yemen today is a scandal for those who claim to be supporters of human rights,” Judiciary Spokesman Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei told reporters in a press conference in Tehran on Monday.
He blasted Saudi Arabia, the US and their allies for blocking humanitarian aid to Yemen, including three Iranian planes that were carrying food and medicine for the Yemeni people and were warned by the Saudi fighter jets to stay away from Yemen’s airspace.
“Today, the people in Yemen are experiencing an acute lack of water, electricity, fuel, medicine and equipment in hospitals and the situation resembles the Gaza siege and the office of Iran’s prosecutor-general will certainly adopt the necessary measures in this regard,” Mohseni Ejei said.
