Spox: Int'l community silence emboldens Saudi-led coalition

Tehran, Feb 16, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi on Sunday slammed Saudi coalition attack on Al Maslub District, Yemen, saying the international community's silence toward war crimes has emboldened perpetrators of war crimes and the crimes against humanity by the Saudi-led coalition.

Mousavi sympathized with the bereaved families of the victims of the deadly attack which claimed the lives of scores of Yemenis and injured others.

He added that over the last few years, we observed that whenever coalition forces led by Saudis or their allies are defeated ludicrously in the battlefields, they ruthlessly kill women, kids and civilians by the US weapons and create massive humanitarian disaster, he added.

The spokesman called on the international community to put an end to war in Yemen, saying that silence of the international community toward these war crimes has emboldened the Saudi-led coalition to trample upon human rights of the civilians living in Yemen.
