A member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission called on the United Nations to pressure Saudi Arabia over its violations of the UN-sponsored ceasefire in Yemen, stressing that the world body should stop making its decisions based on the interests of “certain countries.”  

“Most of the tensions created by the Saudis in the region stem from the collapse of the Arab country’s internal structure,” ICANA quoted Esmaeil Kosari as saying on Monday.

He warned that by measures such as military action against Yemen, the Saudis cannot put right their broken internal affairs.  

“By hiring terrorists from all around the world, the Saudis created the so-called Islamic State terrorist group to raise fear in the Middle East… acting as an agent (for the US),” he said, adding that this is only an illusion that the Saudi regime can change its bleak future by adopting such policies.   

Saudi Arabia has targeted different areas across Yemen killing and injuring a large number of people since announcement of a humanitarian truce in Yemen by the UN on Friday.

Riyadh launched its military campaign against Yemen on March 26 without a UN mandate. According to UN statistics, more than 3,000 people have been killed over the past three months in the impoverished country.
