A foreign ministry official said the Islamic Republic is actively taking action to stop Saudi Arabia’s military assault against Yemen by focusing on political solutions and dispatching humanitarian aid.

“A humanitarian catastrophe is unfolding in Yemen, and the siege of the country as well as a blockade on humanitarian aid supplies …has no justification,” Press TV quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian as saying on Sunday.  

He said the growth of terrorism and the undermining of Muslims’ power are the only outcome of Saudi Arabia’s “strategic mistake” of invading Yemen, which will simply strengthen the Israeli regime in the region. He also advised the Saudi government to take a lesson from the fate of the US military interference in the region and immediately halt its military aggression against Yemen.
