Iran Parliament strongly condemns Saudi-led aggression on Yemen
Iran’s Parliament First Vice-Speaker said that the Iranian Parliament strongly deplores the Saudi-led military strike against the innocent Yemeni people, calling on the international community to do its best to stop the bloodshed.
Addressing an open session of the parliament, Seyyed Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabi Fard said in Tehran on Sunday “The Parliament strongly condemns the Saudi regime’s inhumane aggression against Yemen.”
He also underlined that the Iranian parliament expects the international community, especially those countries and bodies which claim to be supporters of democracy, the United Nations and the UN Security Council to firmly stand against such inhumane aggression and don’t allow any further blow to the economic infrastructures of the innocent Yemeni people in the Saudis’ unfair attacks.
Aboutorabi Fard said “We also urge the parliaments of all Islamic countries to seriously and firmly stand against this illegitimate aggression which is being staged against all humane, ethical, religious and political teachings”.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 11 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression against Yemen has killed at least 874 people, including hundreds of women and children. Another 1,700 people have also been wounded in the last 11 days.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries.
