Saudi air attacks kill, injure 205 Yemeni civilians in one month

Tehran, Feb 3, IRNA – Saudi coalition air strikes killed or injured 205 Yemeni civilians in January, Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman said.

According to the Yemeni media 'Al-Masirah', Brigadier General Yahya Saree said 88 civilians including 22 kids and 8 women were killed and 117 more were injured.

He added that Saudi's crimes against Yemeni children uncover the false claims made by the international community and the so-called defenders of human rights.

Referring to at least 30 air attacks every day in Yemen, he said Saudi coalition and its allies have violated the truce agreement 4,621 times since the ceasefire was declared.

Sweden agreement does not need more observers, he said, adding that Yemeni forces have fully implemented the agreement and have so far been committed top it.

The United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2451 to support the Stockholm Agreement on deployment of a team in order to facilitate monitoring and implementing the Agreement and establishing truce in important Yemeni ports.

The resolution mainly focuses on sending essential commodities to the Yemeni people, supporting the Stockholm Agreement, assigning the Secretary-General of the United Nations to implement it and observing the ceasefire.

The fourth round of Yemen peace talks kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden on December 6 with the attendance of the UN special envoy Martin Griffith and the government representatives. It agreed to establish truce in Yemeni ports of al-Hudaydah, al-Salif and Ayn Issa.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.
