Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has strongly condemned the Saudi-Emirati coalition for attacking a bus carrying Yemeni school students in Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada, killing and wounding tens of innocent children.
In a Thursday statement, Qassemi expressed sympathy with the families of the victims of the “war crime” and called on the international community and human rights bodies to put an end to the crimes committed by aggressive countries in Yemen through all possible means.
“The intensified bombardment of residential areas and civilian targets in Yemen reveals the back-to-back defeats of the Saudi-Emirati Coalition in the battlefields,” he said.
The spokesman also expressed regret over the continued supply of arms to Saudi Arabia and the UAE by some self-proclaimed defenders of human rights, saying these states are complicit in the war crimes committed in Yemen and should be held accountable.
Qassemi urged the United Nations and other major players in the world to step up their efforts to put an immediate end to the aggressors’ attacks on Yemen and adopt necessary measures to protect the health and security of the civilians particularly women and children of the war-torn country.
