Iran: Saudi Hodeida attack continuation of ‘horrifying genocide’ of Yemenis

Iran strongly condemned recent airstrikes by a Saudi-led coalition that killed scores of people in the western Yemeni province of Hodeida.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi called the attacks the continuation of the Saudi-led alliance's “horrifying genocide” of the people of the impoverished country.

The coalition was slaughtering and taking revenge on the Yemenis by attacking civilian targets “to make up for its frustration and defeats on the battleground,” Qassemi said, according to Press TV.

“This is nothing other than a serious war crime,” he asserted, saying the continuation of the atrocities of the Saudi-led alliance in the face of the silence of the international community had “worryingly aggravated the situation of the Yemenis."

The spokesman finally warned against the "normalization" of the atrocities that the Saudi-led alliance was committing in Yemen in the eyes of the international community.

Earlier in the day, at least 55 people were killed after warplanes of the Saudi-led military coalition hit a hospital and a fishing harbor in Hodeida.

A day earlier, at least nine fishermen were killed after Saudi airstrikes targeted their ship off the coast of Hodeida.
