Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi strongly condemned recent deadly Saudi airstrikes on “the defenseless people” of Yemen, saying that Riyadh is seeking to make up for its defeats in the impoverished Arab country by killing civilians.  

In a statement on Tuesday, Qassemi decried Saudi airstrikes on a market in Taiz on Tuesday as well as relentless attacks on civilian targets in different Yemeni cities over the past few days, which killed and injured dozens of innocent people, including women and children, and called for an immediate halt to the attacks, Tasnim News Agency reported. “During more than a thousand days since the beginning of the devastating war on [Yemen], Saudi Arabia has shown that whenever it faces failure and defeat in battlefields and operational areas, it seeks to take revenge by bombarding the defenseless people and killing innocent women and children.”It is regrettable and surprising that these crazy attacks conducted with fatal American arms do not draw the reaction of those who claim [to be advocates of human rights].” Saudi warplanes struck a crowded market in Taiz, killing over 40 people. On Monday, airstrikes hit Sana’a, killing at least 11 people.
