“During over a thousand days since the outset of this devastating war, Saudi Arabia has shown that whenever it faces failure and defeat in battlefields and operation zones, it retaliates by bombarding the defenseless people and killing innocent women and children,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Wednesday, Press TV reported.
Qassemi also criticized the so-called advocates of human rights for their inaction in the face of such “crazy” attacks, which are conducted by lethal American weapons.
On Tuesday, Saudi-led airstrikes killed or injured over 120 people in a market in Heime district in the southwestern province of Ta’izz.
One day earlier, over 30 people were killed in Saudi airstrikes targeting various areas across Yemen, including the capital Sana’a.
Saudi Arabia has been incessantly pounding Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to crush the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement and reinstate former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
At least 13,600 Yemeni people have been killed since the onset of the military campaign in 2015. Much of the Arabian Peninsula country’s infrastructure, including hospitals, schools and factories, has been reduced to rubble due to the war.
