Fri Oct 9, 2015 08:44:19

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian deplored the Saudi-led attacks on residential areas, schools and hospitals in Yemen as a “blatant” violation of international law.

Speaking in a meeting with a senior delegation from the high council of Yemen's revolution, Amir Abdollahian highlighted international organizations’ duty to immediately help stop the foreign attacks on Yemeni civilians.

“Attacking residential areas, schools and hospitals is a blatant violation of human rights and regulations,” he said, adding that the United Nations should take necessary measures to protect the safety and security of Yemeni civilians, especially women and children.

The Iranian diplomat went on to say that the UN is required to make every effort to lift the blockade imposed by the Saudi-led coalition on the Arabian Peninsula nation.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for months.

On March 26, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies began to launch deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

More than 4000 people, many of them children and women, have been killed in the aggression against the Arab country so far.

The Saudi-led aerial strikes have targeted 61 hospitals and 13 ambulances; Tasnimnews reported.
