On Thursday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said the overnight Saudi raid on the Iranian embassy has seriously wounded one of the security guards at the scene.

“In the coming hours, we are set to inform the United Nations on the details of this issue in an official report,” said the Iranian diplomat.

Saudi fighter planes on Wednesday's night targeted Iranian Embassy in Sana's by rocket. A part of the embassy's wall was damaned by rockets' shrapnels.
